In 1983 the National Office of Job Corps conducted a review of Job Corps vocational offerings and outcomes for fiscal year 1982. Based on a review of Job Corps procedures identifying emerging occupations, assessing training needs, developing curricula, and implementing training programs, the project researchers developed a series of recommendations aimed at improving Job Corps vocational education offerings and delivery systems. These recommendations included calls for initiating procedures to implement review findings, for developing and implementing a system for biennial training program review, for developing center contacts with local labor market sources, and for conducting follow-up research studies. In addition, the researchers identified a series of new occupations with potential for addition to Job Corps vocational training offerings. (MN)
