Explanation and Analysis of the Job Training Partnership Act of 1982.
National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.
The Job Training Partnership Act of 1982 continues a long-standing federal commitment to help disadvantaged persons prepare to obtain employment. The legislation works primarily through a locally based program delivery system to provide remedial education, training, and employment assistance to low-income and long-term unemployed youth and adults. A key feature of the JTPA is promoting equal roles for both the public and the private sectors in all aspects of programs set up under the act. Another is making both sectors partners in determining how funds are administered and programs managed at the local level. This publication provides an overview of the JTPA legislation and an explanation of how it is to be implemented. The first part of the guide is an overview of the legislation, including an outline of major legislative elements and the transition provisions for changing from the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) structure to the JTPA structure. The remainder of the paper outlines key features of the new legislation in detail. Eight sections include establishing (1) the state and local delivery system; (2) local public/private partnership and process; (3) authorized activities and use of funds; (4) performance standards, incentives, and sanctions; (5) auditing, monitoring, and reporting techniques; (6) employment service provisions; (7) state activities and programs; and (8) federally administered programs.
