Employer-Sponsored Training. Overview: ERIC Fact Sheet No. 17.
This fact sheet identifies some of the basic premises of employer-sponsored training and reviews two studies that surveyed the quantity of occupational training in industry. Highlights and statistics from a 1977 study by Seymour Lusterman entitled "Education in Industry," and a 1975 study by the Bureau of Labor Statistics entitled "Occupational Training in Selected Metalwork Industries, 1974" present findings concerning percentages of companies which provide training programs, types of programs offered, percentages of employees participating in training, reasons why companies have training programs, and budget and personnel allocations for training. Three identified categories of training are listed: essential, remedial, and beneficial. The following on-site and off-site training methods are described: (1) on-the-job training (OJT); (2) coaching; (3) job rotation; (4) lecture; (5) audiovisual; (6) computer-assisted instruction; and (7) equipment simulators. Three professional journals are listed as sources of information on this topic along with a bibliography citing six resources, three of which are available from the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) system.
