Pipeline: An Employment and Training Simulation.
Easterly, Jean L.; Meyer, David P.
This monograph is one of a series developed for curriculum in higher education which prepares personnel for employment in local, state, and regional levels of Employment and Training Administration programs of the U.S. Department of Labor. This publication describes a simulation game called "Pipeline" rather than a regular university course. The game is intended to represent major aspects of employability programs and to surface a number of issues related to the organization, management, and delivery of services in employment and training programs. The constraints of the game allow participants to assume ownership for their actions during the game, thereby assisting participants to locate problem areas and to pose solutions. At the end, participants move from a simulated setting to a better understanding of the real problems which exist within Employment and Training Programs. This document addresses the following topics: an overview of development and employability programs, simulation of the employability system, game preparations, rules, game facilitator's responsibilities, and debriefing.
