Apprenticeship - School Linkage Implementation Manual.
Martin, Sharon T.; And Others
Developed to assist interested sponsors in implementing apprenticeship-school linkage projects, this guide is intended to organize the collective experiences of those who have implemented the demonstration projects to highlight the day-to-day mechanics involved. Section 1 overviews apprenticeship-school linkage. In section 2 factors are described that should be considered during the planning phase, including choosing a task force, allotting time for planning, school involvement, industrial involvement, goal setting, size/scope of project, targeting, legal concerns, and organization and structure. Section 3 focuses on activities, staff selection and training, project promotion, linking with schools, student recruitment, and job development. Project administration is the focus of section 4. It considers coordination of roles and responsibilities with registration agency staff; monitoring, accountability, and control; registration activities; staffing; single versus mutiple school district involvement; state variation in policy and law; and related instruction and transition. Section 5 highlights basic management principles. Section 6 describes contractor types and their strengths and weaknesses: state education agencies, postsecondary institutions, single school system, and private, non-profit corporations. Alternative administrative models are summarized. Appendixes include project summaries and a glossary. (YLB)
