Concept Papers: Relationships between Vocational Education and Job Creation. Job Creation Project.
Illinois Univ., Champaign.
This publication contains ten papers designed to show relationships between job creation and vocational education. Information is presented regarding three areas: (1) national and state perspectives of job creation, (2) examples of how specific vocational education disciplines impact in the job creation process, and (3) case studies of job creation activities in three communities. The first paper, Vocational Education's Role in Job Creation and Job Development, presents a national perspective of job creation, while the second, Job Creation and Vocational Education Leadership, emphasizes the need for leadership at the state level to facilitate the job-creation process. Small Business Development and Job Creation provides a rationale for small business as a primary source of job creation activities. The Role of CETA (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act) in Job Creation focuses on CETA programs which are designed to prepare people for the work force. The next three papers concern the impact on job creation of three specific vocational areas: health care industry, special needs population, and new and emerging vocational home economics. The final three papers are case studies developed to highlight activities within communities that affect employment. The communities are Staples, Minnesota, and Urbana-Champaign and Decatur/Macon County, Illinois. (YLB)
