Student Cooperative Training Units. Business Partnerships Final Performance Report.
The North Clackamas School District (Oregon) conducted the Student Cooperative Training Units (CTU) program. The CTU program addressed two key issues that disrupted the development and maintenance of local high technology businesses: (1) The aerospace parts casting, health care, and graphic reproduction industries have experienced a shortage of trained workers ready to enter the labor force; (2) in addition, the local training facility has a surplus of entry-level jobs that have gone unfilled by Sabin Skills Center graduates. Business/education partnerships were established with local high technology companies to solve recruitment problems and address barriers to employment. The CTU program served as a bridge between the Skills Center, postsecondary programs, and local industry. Internships gave students an opportunity to experience employment in high technology businesses. (Ten appendices are included: (1) cooperative demonstration program brochure; (2) student orientation materials; (3) internship design; (4) internship position description; (5) pilot program internship schedule; (6) on-site documentation form; (7) internship evaluation form; (8) pilot project outcomes; (9) school-year internship schedule; and (10) internship guidelines.)
