Apprenticeship and Community Colleges: Collaborations for Tomorrow's Workforce. A Final Report of a Research Project.
Cantor, Jeffrey A.
This monograph focuses on job training delivered through employer-sponsored cooperative apprenticeships with the community college. Following an introduction, chapter 2 looks at job training and cooperative apprenticeships, including recent legislative efforts to promote linkages and cooperative apprenticeships through tech prep initiatives. Chapter 3 discusses the community college, long in the business of serving the community and its economic needs and affairs. Chapter 4 reviews the issues of community economic development and associated issues and relationships of job training as provided by the community college. Chapter 5 describes the case study method used to identify and review factors influencing successful cooperative apprenticeship linkages and presents an overview of the programs reviewed and analyzed: (1) the automotive industry, including professional association groups, manufacturers, and dealerships; (2) electrical and construction labor union sponsored programs; (3) the maritime industry and U.S. government; and (4) professional firefighters and emergency services personnel. Chapters 6-9 analyze the data uncovered relating to the four programs and their uses of cooperative apprenticeships for training and human resource development. Chapter 10 describes a model for cooperative apprenticeship between business and industry, labor, government, professional organizations, the community college, and the local community. The report includes 14 figures, 6 tables, and a 104-item bibliography. (YLB)
