Innovations in Apprenticeship: The Feasibility of Establishing Demonstration Centers for Apprenticeship and Other Industrial Training. Final Report.
Somers, Gerald G.
In order to determine the feasibility of establishing demonstration centers for apprenticeship and skill training, extensive interviews were conducted involving union officers, employer representatives, vocational educators, and officials of federal and state apprenticeship divisions in this country and abroad during the period from 1971 through 1972. On the basis of the interviews and on-site observations of currently operating demonstrations, innovations, and experiments in apprenticeship training, four specific possibilities for demonstration centers were recommended as were the types of projects to be attempted. Recommended site locations are California, Colorado, New York, and Wisconsin. The proposed centers and demonstration projects are merely suggestive of the possibilities. It is anticipated that the projects conducted at the centers will be expanded over time, and that their selection and evaluation will be part of the experimental process characterizing the centers.
