National Advisory Council on Vocational Education, Washington, DC.
As the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) is replaced by the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), this report provides suggestions on coordinated activities by the state advisory councils for vocational education (SACVEs) to assist in the development of overall JTPA policy and the planning of programs at state and local levels. The first section describes the organizational structure of JTPA and the areas in which vocational education representatives can assist with planning and implementing. Section 2 outlines the functions of the state jobs training coordinating councils and suggests activities for the SACVEs at the state level. Section 3 describes the functions of the local private industry councils and suggests SACVE activities for the local level. The fourth section outlines programs in three of the four titles of JTPA: Title I--Governor's Coordination and Special Services Programs, Title IIA--Job Training for the Disadvantaged, Title IIB--Summer Youth Programs, and Title III--Special Programs for Dislocated Workers. Additional resources to aid the transition from CETA to JTPA are listed. (SK)
