Ways in Which Vocational Education and Training Institutions Can Establish Effective Linkages with Employers.
Grodman, Randy H.
The Organization for Rehabilitation through Training (ORT) is a private, nonprofit, nongovernmental organization that operates a worldwide network of vocational education and technical assistance programs. ORT has provided training to more than 2 million people around the world. There are two facets of ORT: a network of educational institutions and technical assistance programs. Examples can be drawn from ORT's educational networks in the United States and Uruguay to examine how their institutions establish and maintain effective linkages with employers. Linkages include advisory committees, internship programs, alumni committees, and planning commissions. These linkages keep ORT aware of the specific needs of the economy in order to provide the training needed by workers; they are the key to the success of ORT's worldwide training efforts. (KC)
