Making Partnerships Work: Career Guidance and Work Related Education and Training. Proceedings of a National Invitational Conference (Arlington, Virginia, November 7-8, 1983).
American Association for Counseling and Development, Alexandria, VA.
These proceedings from a national invitational conference on partnerships between career guidance and work-related training contain 18 presentations. Welcoming remarks are followed by the opening address that touches upon broad contextual issues that are important as a rationale for, and as part of, the process of making partnerships work. The next four presentations offer perspectives from education, labor, and business on reasons for working partnerships. Focus of the five following presentations is on approaches to working partnerships. They include a description of the Employee Development and Training Program jointly administered by the Ford Motor Company and the United Auto Workers of America; an overview of Community Collaboration for Improving Career Guidance Programs; specifics on the Improve Career Decision Making Project; information on Project Link, a career decision-making project; two discussions of the use of governmental resources to provide career guidance and training to the unemployed; a description of local career guidance and training to the unemployed; and a description of local career guidance programming in the District of Columbia Public Schools. The keynote address forecasts trends as seen by a congressman. Two papers follow on perspectives from labor and business on workers' needs and responsive career guidance. The final three presentations present highlights of two small group discussions and an open forum. (YLB)
