Wenig, Robert E.; Wolansky, William D.
It is imperative that vocational and technical educators study job training programs and policies in industry in order to develop curriculums that will enable students to make a better transition from school to work. The purpose of this paper was to gather pertinent information about job training efforts in industry so that vocational and technical educators can make informed decisions aimed at improving job training programs. More specific objectives were: (1) to describe the state of the art of job training in industry, and (2) to determine the best possible linkages that can be developed between vocational and technical education and industry. Points brought out in the study include: (1) Industry was mostly concerned about the increasing number of people-related problems, (2) Industry considers cooperative student training as the best type of vocational and technical education for skill development, and (3) Large industries are making great progress in improving job training through the use of the systems approach and better evaluation strategies. Major sections of the report include: (1) Factors Influencing Job Training In Industry, (2) The Description of Job Training In Industry, and (3) The Synthesis of Selected Job Training Programs in Industry.
