Quality Work Force Planning in East Texas. Technology Partnership Organization Final Report 1989-90.
Fabac, John N.
A project was conducted to develop activities leading to the coordination of regional vocational-technical education and training programs with data-based labor market needs in East Texas. An existing group, the Technology Partnership Organization, became the work force planning agency for the area. During the project, the following objectives were accomplished: (1) appropriate regional boundaries were selected; (2) membership size, structure, and responsibilities were established; (3) inventories were taken of regional occupational education programs, economic development initiatives, and current and projected job openings; (4) the match between job openings and vocational-technical education and training programs was evaluated; and (5) a regional plan to coordinate vocational-technical education and training programs with labor market needs was developed. (The 10 appendixes, making up most of this report, include a list of the board of directors and committee members, bylaws, articles of incorporation, inventory of occupational education programs in East Texas, economic development survey instruments, economic development initiatives in East Texas, supplementary labor market data, monthly reports, the operational plan, and a list of work force planning regions.)
