A Survey of Educational Services Provided to JTPA Clients in Florida's Service Delivery Areas. July 1, 1991 - June 30, 1992.
Florida State Council on Vocational Education, Tallahassee.
Evaluation of the coordination of vocational education and programs provided under the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) included a survey of Florida's 24 service delivery areas (SDAs). The assessment was designed to provide a "snapshot" of the services provided to JTPA clients through educational institutions and on-the-job training (OJT) and requested information regarding services provided under Titles IIA, IIB, and III. Twenty respondents reported service to 66,588 clients. Of these clients, 9.8 percent participated in OJT. Half of the reporting Private Industry Councils made no use of private educational institutions to serve Title IIA clients. Public educational institutions were extensively used to provide services to Title IIA clients at the secondary and postsecondary levels. Provision of educational services to Title IIB clients in private educational institutions was extremely rare; most educational services were provided through public high schools. Of Title III clients, 879 received services through private postsecondary educational institutions; 5,066 were served through public postsecondary educational institutions. JTPA clients selected four general groups of programs: medical, heavy equipment, business and clerical, and computer skills. Federal, state, infrastructure, policy, and turf barriers were identified. (Seven pages of narrative information is supplemented with a list and map of Florida's SDAs, 11 tables with survey responses, and the survey instrument.) (YLB)
