JTPA Youth Employment Competency System: A Model. Revised.
Kansas State Dept. of Human Resources, Topeka.
This report describes a youth competency model that was developed to help trainers involved in Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) programs in Kansas to evaluate program participants' competency in four major areas: pre-employment, work maturity, basic education, and job-specific skills. Discussed in the first section, which provides background on youth employment competencies, are the four competency areas, the workings of a youth competency system, the foundation for such a system in the JTPA and regulations, advantages and disadvantages of such a system, roles and responsibilities of program practitioners, and steps in establishing a youth competency system. The second half of the report describes the model's provisions for documentation and certification/credentialing and includes a section on assessing youth competency in each of the four competency areas. Included in each of the individual sections are a basic description of the competency area; a method for preassessment; appropriate program activities; competency measures; criteria for attainment of the given competency area; and worksheets, assessment forms, and examples.
