Linkages Between the Education and Employment and Training Systems. Volume II. Institutional Linkages. Youth Knowledge Development Report 12.3.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Office of Youth Programs.
Designed to provide basic information on the linkages achieved under the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act (YEDPA), this report focuses on education/Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) linkages, the vocational education/CETA connection, and the role of postsecondary institutions (particularly minority colleges) in achieving such linkages. The first section of this volume consists of a compilation of reports on vocational education/CETA coordination. Covered in these reports are a historical perspective of coordination, the educator's side of coordination, coordinative mechanisms, and improvement of existing coordination efforts. Case studies of 111 programs involving cooperative efforts between vocational education and CETA, Title IV, and other employment and training programs are appended to the compilation. Discussed in the remaining sections of the volume are the status of coordination efforts between CETA and vocational education, CETA linkages with postsecondary vocational education, postsecondary responses to unemployed youth, and prime sponsor utilization of colleges and universities in implementing CETA youth programs. (The first volume of this report and a related report on work education councils are available separately--see note.) (MN)
