Partnerships in the New Employment and Training System. Survey Report II. Job Training Partnership Act Research Findings.
A study examined the level and type of integration and coordination that exist among local employment and training practitioners and local and state educational agencies and institutions in the delivery of employment and training services as mandated by the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA). To gather data for the study, researchers conducted structured telephone interviews of 583 local employment and training service providers. Based on these data, it appeared that the average private industry council (PIC) consisted of 25 members: 14 from the business sector, 3 from education, 2 from organized labor, 2 from community-based organizations, 1 each from the rehabilitation, employment, service, and economic development sectors, and 1 from other miscellaneous areas. Educational institutions, both public and private, were much more likely to provide training rather than administrative services. A far greater number of service delivery areas (SDAs) were using educational institutions to provide skill training rather than employability development. Less than 10 percent of the respondents specifically stated that they would use public assistance agencies to provide support services to welfare clients using JTPA training. Nearly one-third of the SDAs had developed agreements (financial or otherwise) with local economic development organizations and nearly 100 interviewees said that the SDA would work closely with new and expanding businesses.
