Options on Roles, Organization, and Programs of the Private Industry Council. Private Industry Council Training Series: 1.
National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.
This handbook, developed by the National Alliance of Business, is designed as a tool for Private Industry Councils (PICs) in promoting permanent partnerships between public and private interests in training and employing the disadvantaged. Basic information on roles, organizational issues, and program activities of the PIC are considered in four sections. All sections begin with an introduction that provides background development information and closes with suggested strategies. The organizational objectives, roles, and relationships of PICs are discussed in section 1 so as to encourage experimentation in the private sector and to promote changes within the existing employment training system. Section 2 highlights the planning, management, and evaluation (PME) process; discusses the usefulness and benefits to be derived from implementation of the process; and suggests how the PME process can contribute to the success of the PIC. The advantages and disadvantages of classroom training, on-the-job training, customized training, upgrading and retraining, pre-employment and job search, and youth and other targeted programs are discussed in the next section. The final section defines Employment Generating Services (EGS) in terms of marketing activities, labor market information, economic development linkages, and other supportive services. Appendixes include the National Alliance of Business's areas of expertise and services upon which a PIC can draw (contact persons and addresses provided), a 36-item reference, and a glossary. (BPB)
