Illinois State Council on Vocational Education, Springfield.
This document consists of five 3-year follow-up reports to a series of technical reports that presented 44 recommendations and 210 suggested activities for improving vocational education and job training in Illinois. Each report has three sections. The executive summary provides background and describes actions taken during 1989, 1990, and 1991 to address the suggestions and recommendations of the respective technical reports. It suggests future directions for continued enhancement and states pertinent recommendations. The overview section highlights the follow-up actions resulting from suggested and recommended activities. Each report follows up the 4 to 14 technical reports related to each of these 5 topics: (1) coordination; (2) education for employment; (3) private sector involvement; (4) quality in vocational education; and (5) special populations. The third section lists abbreviations and acronyms. The five follow-up reports recommend that the private sector identify industry needs for education and job-specific preparation. The following actions are recommended for the Illinois State Board of Education: (1) establish performance standards for vocational-technical education participants; (2) implement a process for retraining, upgrading, and maintaining the Illinois work force as part of the education for employment policy; (3) place priority on issues of program access and provision of services for special populations; (4) use input from the private sector; and (5) meet with other agencies to identify ways to work together.
