Apprenticeship and CETA Technical Assistance Guide.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
Intended to encourage CETA (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act) prime sponsors and apprenticeship program sponsors to integrate their activities, this technical assistance guide demonstrates many ways the two can unite at the local level to train and place people for employment. A general description of CETA is provided explaining the shift in program emphasis from subsidized public employment to employment in the private sector. Following a general description of apprenticeship and the role of the Bureau of Apprentice and Training (BAT), two special emphasis areas are discussed in which BAT has developed programs: new trades or industries which have not previously used apprenticeships, and women in apprenticeship. The second section of this guide shows the relation of the CETA provisions to apprenticeship programs and how the two can coordinate their activities. Program funding is also discussed. In section III, models of specific programs that link the two together are provided as suggestions of the types of programs possible. They include women's building trades, concentrated employment training, building trades, multi-trades, preparatory diesel mechanic, and orientation to nontraditional careers for women. For each, details are listed, such as number of people served, length of training, funding source, and elements of the project design. (ELG)
