Work Experience Perspectives: CETA Program Models.
Pines, Marion W.; Morlock, James H.
This monograph on work experience program models is designed to help prime sponsors of programs under the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) understand the potential of the work experience activity as an employability development tool. The content is presented in seven sections. The first section is a brief introduction, while section 2 presents a working definition of work experience. The focus of the third section is on the labor market mismatch between the labor force and the supply of jobs, and the need for an intervention such as work experience. The fourth section covers the advantages of the work experience strategy for specific population subgroups, work simulation, and other community human service systems. Section 5 overviews the historical evolution of the work experience models developed under categorical programs. The next section examines the key steps in the program planning process and the crucial elements in designing work experience programs. Its focus is on setting the goals and objectives of program design, targeting the client groups, adjusting program content to client needs, developing assessment designs, designing administrative structures and components, and scheduling for implementation. The concluding section describes seven work experience program models. (EM)
