Promoting Local Adoption of a BVT Model: Final Report of the Training and Technical Assistance Project.
Cichon, Donald J.; And Others
A technical assistance effort was conducted to help local agencies develop and implement bilingual vocational training (BVT) programs without direct federal support or to help agencies that provide some BVT-type services develop their programs into more extensive BVT models. A series of three regional meetings were held for prospective BVT programs. These meetings articulated the basic concepts of BVT models, presented resources, and led participants in preliminary planning for program implementation. Eight agencies were selected as aspirants that received customized on-site technical assistance to help develop and implement BVT programs. As a result, one project put in place a BVT program, and three other projects developed BVT programs to a point where they were awaiting clearance of external factors to implement them fully. Two of those three were expected to be operating shortly. Recommendations were made for the continued support of the type of technical assistance that was provided. (Sample materials are appended.)
