Planning for the 80's: Workforce Educational Development Project Report.
Cuyahoga Community Coll., Cleveland, OH.
The findings and recommendations found in this report are the result of a cooperative planning process undertaken by Cuyahoga Community College (CCC) to determine the best way of meeting the training and educational needs of the employed adults in its service district. Background information is presented first, describing the composition and activities of a Steering Committee and Apprenticeship, Banking, Health, Insurance and Investment Organizations, Non-Profit Agencies, Pre-Retirement, Public Relations and Communications, Skills Training in Industry, and Small Business Task Forces. The report then summarizes the major findings of the task forces, detailing the need for increased educational coordination, expanded adult educational opportunities, increased commitment to providing small businesses with technical and training assistance, and nontraditional delivery systems to meet the special needs of adult students. Next, the task forces' findings are synthesized in the recommendations that CCC: (1) take a leadership role in the development of a comprehensive employment and training system for the county; (2) expand its adult vocational education program; (3) experiment with new delivery systems and attack the educational barriers of funding; course scheduling; fear of failure; and lack of incentive, information, and needed programs; and (4) maintain cooperative relationships with the business community. The nine task force reports are appended. (JP)
