Student Cooperative Training Units. Business Partnerships Replication Guide.
This guide is designed to assist in the development of high technology training programs for secondary youth in conjunction with business and industry. The guide communicates issues and potential barriers to success encountered when planning and implementing a cooperative demonstration program. The following summary expresses lessons learned by the Student Cooperative Training Units (CTU) program: (1) Programs must develop a cost-effective plan for using technology and must rethink education and training programs; (2) training should allow students to apply their technical skills to the high technology workplace in order to solve the labor shortage dilemma. The North Clackamas (Oregon) School District's Owen Sabin Occupational Skills Center prepares students for entry into high technology fields. The CTU program links vocational-technical education and the private sector for high technology training. Due to local labor shortages, three clusters were included in the program: advanced information systems, graphic technology, and health occupations. Successful implementation or replication of a demonstration project mandates that the skills and support needed for project implementation are present. In addition, successful program management involves cooperative partnerships between education and training organizations and business/industry. (NLA)
