Youth Programs and the Job Training Partnership Act. Developing Competency Standards: A Guide for Private Industry Council Members.
This guide is intended to assist Private Industry Council (PIC) members in developing competency standards for youth programs receiving Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) funds. Discussed first are the benefits of competency standards to PICs and service delivery areas (SDAs). The various components of program standards (types of skills, skill levels, assessment and measurement criteria, documentation, and certification) are described. Examined in the concluding section are eight steps involved in the process of identifying competencies. An appendix to the manual includes an annotated list of eight resources dealing with developing standards for JTPA programs for youth. (MN)
