Zero In On Cooperative Vocational Education: Training Agreements.
Bureau of Occupational and Adult Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.
The publication is intended to encourage states and localities to give further consideration to the development and utilization of training agreements in the conduct of cooperative vocational education programs. Training agreements assure the integrity of the continuing educational experiences that occur outside the classroom. It is with this awareness that the material contained within this document was brought together. The introduction briefly states the role of cooperative education and lists the various reasons why training agreements are essential to these programs. This is followed by summary definitions of training agreements, training plans, evaluation reports and followup reports; a general outline of the content of a training agreement (general information, monetary compensation, statements of agreement, training plans, and signatures); and brief descriptions of the 12 training agreements issued by the states of Arizona, Arkansas, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wyoming. Sample copies of each of these state's training agreement forms are provided. The document concludes with a directory of the State vocational education directors. (BP)
