Creating Greater Incentives for Joint Planning and Collaboration between Occupational Education and Job Training.
Nevada State Council on Occupational Education, Carson City.
The Nevada Council on Occupational Education (NCOE) recommends that the following agencies/organizations continue to bear responsibility for third-party (private sector) assessment and monitoring of vocational education and job training programs in Nevada: State Job Training Partnership Coordinating Council, private industry councils, state technical committees, and the State Council on Vocational Education. The NCOE further endorses retention of Nevada's current planning process and supports the development of a Human Resource Investment Council (HRIC) to be chaired by the governor or a designee and to include the state-level administrators of 10 federal vocational education, job training, and employment programs funded under 12 acts, including the following: Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act, Job Training Partnership Act, Adult Education Act, Social Security Act (Title IV), Emergency Immigrant Education Act, and Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act. The HRIC should develop a coordination plan that includes the following: written cooperative agreement for use with participating agencies/governing authorities, description of all common participant goals for all federally supported human resource development efforts, uniform definitions of program participant eligibility, granting process, program funding priorities, and program evaluation process.
