In an effort to assist members of the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges (AACJC) in working to implement the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), information is provided and issues are considered which are of concern to CETA prime sponsors and representatives of education. The issues include the goal of CETA to provide job training and employment opportunities for economically disadvantaged, unemployed, and underemployed persons, and the role of local, state, and federal agencies in implementing CETA legislation. The information contained in this document includes: (1) consideration of opportunities for education and excerpts and summaries of corresponding legislation from CETA of 1978; (2) an AACJC brief, summarizing CETA legislation; (3) a list of possible services under CETA (e.g., outreach, basic skill training, career counseling, and day care services); and (4) steps in the process of applying for CETA funds from a prime sponsor. Also included is a prime sponsor/education agreement checklist which covers assessment of existing resources, program description, program outcome and evaluation, and program administration. A final section discusses the contracting process and supplies a model contract. (MB)
