The Employer Participation Model.
National Employer Leadership Council, Washington, DC.
This employer participation model is designed to help employers of all sizes customize their participation in school-to-work activities. Using it as a foundation, companies can evaluate resources and target them to areas of opportunity. The first section focuses on employers working with students and teachers. A chart describes activities in which the company could participate in the schools in its community. For each of three purposes--career awareness, exploration, and preparation, the chart details the activity, its length, and employee-to-student ratio. The second section addresses employers working directly with teachers. A chart identifies partnership activities (employer role) and points of contact for start-up. The third section concerns employers supporting the work of teachers. A chart identifies five ways that employers can contribute to the quality of the classroom experience. Each of the five ways or teacher activities is accompanied by the employer role and the where and how. The fourth section focuses on employers strengthening company practice. A chart captures four areas where the company together with its industry association(s) can focus attention. The four company practices are correlated with company actions and the responsible staff member. The final section concerns employers building a system. A chart lists recommendations at four levels--local, state/region, national, and international--that will support system development. (YLB)
