Education and CETA: A Coordination Guide for Adult Education and Vocational Administrators.
Urban Management Consultants of San Francisco, Inc., CA.
Written for education administrators, primarily for those dealing with Federally funded adult education and vocational education programs at State and local levels, this guide is intended to serve four major purposes: (1) Explain the Comprehensive Employment and Training ACT (CETA) and how it works, (2) point out potential areas for coordination which may benefit the constituents and administrators of CETA, adult education, and vocational education, (3) present a brief and practical analytical framework for identifying other coordinative arrangements, and (4) review the key management techniques that have proven their value in negotiation and implementation of coordination arrangements. The approach suggested has six steps: Acquire knowledge about CETA, assess your own program's needs or unmet objectives, analyze areas of commonality where CETA might fit your program's needs, discover possible opportunities to coordinate with CETA, weigh the costs and benefits of coordination, and, if applicable, negotiate and implement a joint project. One section of the guide focuses on description of CETA programs and the relationships between them and adult education and vocational education programs. Eleven specific examples of coordination opportunities are presented in another section, e.g. combining resources to develop a career education referral center. Analysis, identification, and implementation of coordination arrangements are discussed in the final section, and an illustrative agreement is appended. (WL)
