On-The-Job Training and the Prlvate Industry Council: A Technical Assistance Guide.
Norris, Claudia K.
The 1978 reauthorization of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) introduced a new title, Title VII: the Private Sector Initiative Program (PSIP). This title instructs Prime Sponsors to form a new kind of intermediary organization, a Private Industry Council (PIC), which has the major objective of increasing the opportunities of CETA clients to find employment in the private sector. This technical assistance guide shows how on-the-job training (OJT) programs might operate in the setting of the PIC. The guide begins with a chapter on the background and history of OJT as an employment and training program. It then discusses the various possible roles of PICs in marketing and operating OJT programs, such as client screening, determining local priorities, staffing, linking with other programs, and assisting employers; and then details the methodology of OJT agreements and contracts. Since bringing an innovative approach to private-sector OJT is implicit in the TITLV VII legislation, one chapter is devoted to variations and new concepts that PICs might adopt in Title VII activities, including OJT. The guide closes with a chapter on managing the OJT program. (This technical assistance guide is based largely on an earlier publication, "On-the-Job Training: CETA Program Models.") (KC)
