Assessment of the First Year Impact. Pennsylvania's Customized Job Training Program, 1982-83. Final Report.
Nagy, Mark C.; Gregory, Lynn W.
This report contains findings from a study to examine the impact of Pennsylvania's Customized Job Training (CJT) program upon clients (trainees), business/industry, local education agencies (LEAs), and local communities and the commonwealth. Chapter 1 details study purposes, design, and procedures. Chapter 2 presents a summary description of the 1982-83 CJT program that is derived primarily from information obtained from questionnaires completed by LEA contact persons. Twenty-three tables relate to descriptive data concerning the training project and the company; five tables illustrate the perceptions of the LEA contacts concerning project impact. Chapter 3 provides summary data from a trainee questionnaire. (Four tables are given.) Chapter 4 presents descriptions of 58 projects that provide three kinds of training--entry-level, upgrade with entry-level replacement, and upgrade for new technology--or a combination of training approaches. The final chapter is a review of the impact of Pennsylvania's CJT programs, based on the analysis in chapters 2 through 4. Four sections contain conclusions based on findings concerning impact on clients, business/industry, LEAs, and local communities and the commonwealth; a fifth briefly describes 18 projects selected as exemplary. Nine recommendations are made. Appendixes contain questionnaires and a listing of LEA contact persons. (YLB)
