Supporting YTS. Second Edition.
Further Education Unit, London (England).
This document is a guide to the implementation of the Manpower Services Commission's (MSC) Youth Training Scheme (YTS) in Great Britain. It is intended to serve as a negotiating brief for colleges and schools and for local education authorities in their dealings with employers. An introduction explains the background of YTS, provides an overview of key features of YTS, and discusses the role of the education section in YTS. Each of the next eight sections relates to one of the eight design elements necessary to YTS: induction, assessment, planned work experience, occupationally based training, off-the-job training/education, core areas, guidance and support, and record and review of progress and achievement. Each section states and/or refers to criteria laid down by MSC for training programs and then goes on to describe how these relate to Further Education Unit and other educational perspectives. Section 10 concerns staff development. Section 11 deals with evaluation and describes what an institution might do to evaluate the extent to which it has supported YTS. Appendixes include a common core of skills for vocational preparation, occupational training "families," a description of evaluation approaches, and descriptions of four examples of YTS. (YLB)
