Indiana Univ. of Pennsylvania. Center for Vocational Personnel Preparation.
This process manual explains the procedures followed by a project that provided training for employees of manufacturing industries. It also focuses on the project's attainment of two other objectives: (1) helping industry in the target area become more competitive with foreign rivals; and (2) building a network between industry and education. A project summary discusses the need to provide training or skill upgrading in high technology areas of study, such as word processing, fluid power, computer-controlled machine tools, and computer-aided drafting and design. The manual describes the following activities: establishment of an advisory committee; management plan development; market survey to determine training needs; design of advertising media; establishment of training programs and facilities; development of linkages with industry; adult student registration; design of program agendas; development of outreach systems and information networks; and writing of the project final report. Project materials are provided, including the market survey, memorandum of agreement between school providing training and the project operator, sample training programs and curriculum outlines, registration forms, Lotus recordkeeping system, project correspondence, and the PC Write Word Processing Guide and Electronic Mail User's Guide.
