Apprenticeship 2000. The Public Speaks. Report of Public Comments.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.
This document contains the analysis of public responses to an issue paper published in the Federal Register (December 2, 1987) regarding the U.S. Department of Labor's Apprenticeship 2000 initiative, the purpose of which is to determine the future role of apprenticeship in meeting needs for a skilled work force. The document contains the following sections: (1) an introduction that lists the specific issues on which the public was invited to speak (Should/can the apprenticeship concept be broadened to all industries? What should be the limitations or parameters, in terms of occupations, of an expanded apprenticeship effort? What should be the delivery system for such a system? What should be the role of government in the system? How can apprenticeship be more effectively linked to the education system?) and detailed information on the 310 respondents; (2) an analysis of opinions regarding each issue; (3) three policy objectives (to expand the apprenticeship model to new occupations and industries; to build an apprenticeship system that encourages consistent standards, high quality flexible, portable, competency-based, and variable length apprenticeship programs; and to ensure that there is an effective delivery system and that the programs are coordinated with education and training systems) that have been formulated as a result of the analysis of public responses; and (4) an appendix that lists key words that appeared in the responses.
