Low Enrollment Apprenticeship Program.
Lane Community Coll., Eugene, OR.
To combat the problem of registered apprentices being unable to receive federally mandated related training as a consequence of low class enrollment, an innovative program was developed for community colleges to provide such training for several different trades. The classroom training offers a core curriculum in ten major subject areas common to many trades and includes requirements such as safety, tools, math, blueprints, economics, etc. The program is administered by the apprenticeship coordinator who evaluates apprentices, facilitates their entry into adult education courses, sets up workshops to accomodate non-core requirements, and monitors program progress while coordinating the program's multimodal approach which includes correspondence and home study, telephone conference, traditional classes, and adapted classroom situations. Regular job site visits are conducted by the coordinator with employer and apprentice. A third-party evaluation concluded that all program goals were reached and that the program is extremely useful for handicapped and disadvantaged students. (Included in the report are the third-party evaluation and a report of the assistant cooperative work experience coordinator, which presents findings, identification of problem areas, and recommendations based on survey of supervisors and students in the carpenter, plumbing, plant electrician, inside electrician, and millright programs.)
