Brower, Sally M.; And Others
Designed as a reference for practitioners interested in implementing or improving vocational education programs to serve disadvantaged youth, this report contains the results of a nationwide study of institutional interface between vocational education and CETA (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act) Title IV prime sponsors. The 111 programs examined are grouped in three sections: coordinated vocational education--CETA programs (other than Title IV), and coordinated programs between vocational education and other (non-CETA) employment and training service providers. Each program description includes title, location, educational agency, prime sponsor, funding, in-kind contribution, target groups, and contact person. The text of each program narrative is divided into these topics: overview, role of vocational education, prime sponsor involvement, and program activities organized by activity/service areas. These areas, specifically embodied in Title IV legislation include (1) administrative affairs; (2) outreach assessment, counseling, ano supportive services; (2) non-skills-oriented training; (4) institutional occupational skills training; (5) work experience and on-the-job training; and (6) placement. A list of acronyms follows. Concluding indexes classify the programs by major funding sources, major target groups served, urban/rural designation of program locations, prime sponsor types, and location in federal (Department of Health, Education, and Welfare) region.
