Competencies Needed by Youth Apprenticeship Program Coordinators.
A project was conducted in Wisconsin to identify the competencies needed by youth apprenticeship program coordinators. The descriptive research study used a two-stage survey process to identify the competencies and determine their importance. In the first round of the survey process, all youth apprenticeship coordinators in the state were asked to identify the competencies they had to develop in order to design, implement, and maintain the youth apprenticeship program, and a similar survey was distributed to teachers who taught youth apprentices. Input from the first round was used to develop a rating scale for the second part of the process. Responses from the coordinators were used to identify competencies that were used in the survey instruments sent to coordinators in the second round, with the same process being used to develop a second round survey for the teachers. The study found that the following competencies were regarded as the most important by the coordinators: (1) recruit employers; (2) promote program to students; (3) promote program to teachers, counselors, and administrators; (4) promote program to parents; (5) time management; and (6) apply child labor laws. (Nineteen tables and the survey forms are included in the report.) (Author/KC)
