Follow-Through Services: A Missing Link to Employment for the Disadvantaged.
Campbell, Robert E.; And Others
This report presents findings of a study that sought to identify the degree to which employment and training programs, especially Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs, provide follow-through services to disadvantaged and nontraditional graduates and the current barriers and facilitators to their delivery. It first describes the problem and study methodology (consultation with national experts and a wide range of CETA personnel and a literature review). Findings presented concern current status of follow-up services, facilitators and barriers, and advocacy for provision of follow-through services. Fourteen recommendations are made for improving service delivery. Following this narrative, the remainder of the report (approximately 70%) describes a model for follow-through services, intended as a design for the implementation of follow-through services in any setting, but especially employment and training settings. The model provides a detailed step-by-step outline, including such activities as the need for the model, objectives, guidelines, and strategies for services (job search assistance, job adjustment counseling, career planning and training assistance, program evaluation for planning, and staffing requirements).
