Cooperative Apprenticeships. A School-to-Work Handbook.
Cantor, Jeffrey A.
This book explains the process of designing, developing, and implementing cooperative apprenticeship, a form of structured workplace training in which an employer, employer group, or industry, union or other community-based organization joins forces with a vocational-technical school and/or community college to provide formal instruction that includes structured work-based experience. The following topics are among those discussed in the book's first nine chapters: characteristics/models of cooperative apprenticeship; steps in building school-to-work collaboratives; needs assessment and marketing; a school-to-work concept for preapprenticeship and youth apprenticeship programs; design/development of apprenticeship programs; recruitment, screening, and selection of apprentices and employers; related classroom education and educational support; and apprentice testing, evaluation, and certification . Listed in chapter 10 are associations, sources of government assistance, newsletters, journals/periodicals, and books likely to be useful to individuals involved in designing/developing cooperative apprenticeship programs. The book contains 46 tables/figures and 81 end-of-chapter references. Appended are U.S. Department of Labor Standards for apprentice program registration and lists of the following: apprenticeable occupations; Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training state offices and state apprenticeship councils; labor commissioners'/regional directors' state-level contacts; and Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training regional offices.
