Technical Education's Support of New and Expanding Industry.
Salley, Jake
In order to diversify its economy and raise the economic level of its people, South Carolina concluded that a possible solution might be to provide pretrained people for the work force of any industry that located in the State or for any expanding industry within the State. In 1961, Technical Education Committee (TEC) Centers were created and since that time, with the help of Federal funds, the program has trained approximately 500,000 South Carolinians. Sixteen TEC Centers and special schools provide training leading to a diploma, certificate, or associate degree, offering occupationally-oriented programs that match individual and community needs. The paper traces the procedures and ramifications involved in attracting and developing new industry in the State, determining the type of training needed, developing and equipping training facilities, and planning a curriculum. Recruiting trainees for the program, screening applicants, teacher training, and the maintenance of a manpower supply for industry are problems dealt with in discussing this State-wide approach to manpower development.
