Workplace Learning. Preparing the Workers of Today for the Workplace of Tomorrow.
Krusemark, Dawn M.
This report pinpoints the need to upgrade workers' skills and the means for accomplishing this goal through the development of workplace learning programs (WPLPs). Labor supply and demographic trends that affect the nation's workplace are explored. An examination of training programs follows. General guidelines for establishing WPLPs, derived from a statewide survey in New York, are presented, followed by a review of collaborative efforts of labor unions, public education systems, and the business community. Brief summaries of relevant federal legislation and of federal and New York State funding sources are followed by recommendations for action by unions, by the education and business communities, and by the Federal and State Governments. An appendix contains the survey form. A bibliography and resource list totaling 80 items are included. (KC)
