The Coordination of Job Training. Strategies for the Delivery of Services between Vocational Education Agencies and Private Industry Councils/SDAs. The 1993 Biennial Report as Required by Carl D. Perkins Vocational & Applied Technology Education Act of 1990 (P.L. 101-392).
California State Council on Vocational Education, Sacramento.
Coordination of job training delivery strategies by vocational education (VE) agencies and private industry councils/service delivery areas (PICs/SDAs) throughout California in 1993 was reviewed. Among the review's main findings were the following: more than 9 of 10 SDAs have VE representatives on PICs; community colleges are the VE representatives most frequently chosen for PICs; only 36% of SDAs have awarded contracts to VE agencies to foster coordination; 95% of SDAs involve VE representatives in general SDA program planning; VE representatives cite running summer youth programs as a key coordination strategy; and VE representatives consider training contracts and joint program planning the most effective coordination strategies, whereas SDAs consider memorandum-of-understanding arrangements and VE training contracts most effective. SDAs rated the effectiveness of working with the following educational agencies as follows (on a 10-point scale): high schools, 6.7; adult education, 7.3; regional occupational centers/programs, 7.1; community colleges, 7.5; and all VE programs and agencies, 7.0. Both SDAs and VE agencies recommended more coordination between state-level agencies and development of shared information sharing/client referral systems. (Appended is information about 24 regional consortia involving SDAs and VE agencies. Twenty-six tables are included.) (MN)
