Bilingual Vocational Training Programs (BVTP's): FY80-FY85.
Connecticut State Dept. of Education, Hartford. Div. of Vocational-Technical Schools.
Bilingual vocational training programs (BVTPs) are provided at 10 regional vocational-technical schools (RVTSs) throughout Connecticut. The BVTP model is based on the following components: job-entry trade and related education skills taught bilingually, job-specific English-as-a-second-language (ESL) instruction, preventive counseling and a life coping skills course, case management of trainees' problems related to such areas as transportation and child care, job development and placement, and analysis of the labor market to select training areas with job demand that are matched to RVTS' training capabilities and compatibility with participants' culture. The BVTPs receive technical assistance, supportive and instructional materials, and computer courseware from the Connecticut Division of Vocational-Technical Schools. The Fiscal Year (FY) 85 budget for BVTP programming was $270,000. In the period encompassing FY80 through and including FY84, BVTPs served a total of 735 Connecticut residents; 508 students received BVTP services in FY85. (MN)
