Apprenticeship: A Partnership. A Guide for Managers of Inservice Programs for Apprenticeship Related Instruction.
Lawton, Marcy F.
This inservice training guide, developed as part of a cooperative project conducted by the Fairfax County, Virginia, Public Schools in conjunction with the Virginia Merit Shop Education Foundation, is intended to assist administrators and planners of apprenticeship training programs. (The apprenticeship program was developed to recruit women, members of minority groups, and English-as-a-Second-Language speakers into eight construction trade apprenticeships.) The guide provides managers with a comprehensive approach to the training process to increase the probability of success. It covers the following topics: need for inservice training, inservice training as a job requirement, goals and objectives, responsible parties, needs assessment, publicity and pretraining mailouts, handouts, establishing a positive atmosphere, training strategies and techniques, training content, evaluating the instructor, resources for inservice training, and evaluating the inservice training. A list of 11 suggested resources is provided. (KC)
