Preparing for Transition. Annual Report to the Governor.
California Employment and Training Advisory Council, Sacramento.
This report summarizes employment and employment training activities in California during 1981-82; provides a retrospective view of programs operated in California under the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973 (CETA); discusses the Job Training Partnership Act of 1982 (JTPA), the Federal Program that replaced CETA and is expected to be implemented in 1984; and describes the role of the California Employment and Training Advisory Council in overseeing employment and training activities. Specific sections of the report describe: (1) issues and lessons learned from implementing CETA activities in California, concerning planning and coordination, public service and women's employment, plant closures, skill shortages, job creation, private sector partnerships, refugees, and youth unemployment; (2) the transition from CETA to JTPA; (3) JTPA objectives and planned activities; (4) activities of the different committees under the California Employment and Training Advisory Council; and (5) 1982 CETA allocations, expenditures, participant characteristics, cost effectiveness, and accomplishments. The report suggests that while CETA had weaknesses, it was successful in enabling numerous disadvantaged Californians to find employment; and further, that CETA's success indicates that job training programs work. A CETA council membership roster is included in the report. (MJL)
