Strategies for Involving the Private Sector in Job Training Programs.
Greenwood, Katy; And Others
This two-part report describes various strategies for involving the private sector in job training programs and summarizes a study conducted with prime sponsors of Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs in Texas. Included in a discussion of involving the private sector in job training programs are the following topics: the new mandate for private sector involvement; the benefits of business/industry involvement in job training; the purpose of private sector involvement; barriers to private sector involvement in job training; components of success (definition of goals, promotion and management, involvement, cost); and strategies for collaboration (the vocational education and CETA delivery systems). A bibliography for private sector involvement in job training is also provided. Summarized next are the results of a survey completed by a total of 24 CETA prime sponsors and Balance of State program contractors in the state of Texas in order to determine the extent of private sector involvement in job training programs and employment generating services. The questionnaire is included along with an item-by-item tabulation of responses to it. (Other Education for Work Linkage Project reports are available separately--see note.) (MN)
