Building Blocks for a California Workforce Preparation System: A Progress Report.
California State Job Training Coordinating Council, Sacramento.
The State Job Training Coordinating Council (SJTCC) developed recommendations for a new workforce preparation system for California. Its 30 members represented industry and business, state and local government, local and community-based organizations, and the general public. Four committees that focused on four broad areas--coordination and planning, private sector involvement, performance based accountability, and governance--sought information through focus sessions, policy papers, public forums and hearings, conference, and literature review. Recommendations were produced for three issues related to coordination and planning: funding, priorities, and access. Recommendations to ensure private sector involvement were detailed in a strategic outreach plan. SJTCC developed a performance-based accountability system that could compile, maintain, and disseminate information on provider performance, programs, and the workforce preparation system. Creation of the California Workforce Preparation Council was recommended. Recommendations regarding service delivery were made for new mechanisms in One-Stop Vision and School-to-Career State Plan. Next steps were identified for the four areas. (Appendixes include a 14-item bibliography, acronym list, recommendations for the four areas, and comments and responses from the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges and State Board of Education.)
