How to Structure Job Tasks for Training the Disadvantaged.
National Civil Service League, Washington, DC.
For those who have not had the opportunity to develop the specific knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to qualify for technical and professional positions, training programs and job restructuring can mean the beginning of a career with a chance for upward mobility in salary and responsibility. Steps in job restructuring are: (1) determine the relationship of the job to the system of which it is a part, (2)describe the job tasks, (3) estimate the average time required for the tasks, (4) rate each task in regard to difficulty, (5) rate each task in terms of general education development, and (6) group tasks according to worker functions and general education development. After determining the tasks, it is necessary to structure the training program by determining the knowledges and skills to be learned, abilities to be developed, and decisions to be made. Also, when restructuring jobs, considerable thought should be given to those positions that will result in a career ladder. Examples of job restructuring, career ladders development, and training sequence are included. A related document is available as VT 012 079 in this issue. (SB)
