Linkage between Vocationally Trained Participants and Industry Registered Apprenticeship Programs: An Implementation Manual.
Thomas, Hollie B.; And Others
This manual was developed to provide assistance to persons in registered apprenticeships and vocational education who wish to form a link between these two institutions. It offers a procedure that can be adapted to meet local conditions. The major sections of the manual define linkage, describe when linkage is likely to occur, list the possible benefits, enumerate the conditions that facilitate linkage, describe how to develop a linkage plan, provide suggestions on how to implement linkage plans, and describe an evaluation process. (This structure was selected for the manual so that those considering entering into a linkage agreement could establish what they deem are necessary ingredients for a linkage plan, as well as weigh the possible costs and benefits of entering into such an agreement, before making initial contacts with the agency with which linkage is proposed.) In addition, the manual provides assistance in making important first contacts so that the conditions that facilitate linkage can be maximized. Procedures for determination of the content of the linkage agreement and the development of the process to accomplish the activities also are provided. Finally, suggestions about how to carry out and evaluate the planned activities are provided. Sample forms for a linkage arrangement are offered in appendixes to the manual. (KC)
