Tips on Developing Technical Training Partnerships.
Just, David A.; And Others
This paper begins by presenting tips on developing technical training partnerships from the perspective of the local director of the Ohio Industrial Training Program. This section indicates that every linkage needs a catalyst and that the role of the Ohio Industrial Training Program is to be such a catalyst. The issues and concerns of which the company must be made aware are discussed. The next section provides tips gained from the experiences of a joint effort by the United Auto Workers and General Motors at the Mansfield-Ontario Plant. Training requirements, course content, and student/trainee issues, such as counseling, grading policy, and employee assessment are considered. Some practical tips are suggested for pushing to get the most out of the partnership. Tips from a technical college's perspective are offered next. These include suggestions for facilities and equipment, a customized course development process, faculty/staff requirements, student services, financial management, and marketing of training programs. The paper concludes with Ohio Board of Regents background information concerning EnterpriseOhio, a statewide network of Ohio's public community colleges, technical colleges, and university branch campuses, which is intended to develop a productive and technologically advanced work force for Ohio's industries and businesses. Organization, programs and services, and working groups are discussed. (YLB)
