Workforce Development. Symposium 37. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
Three presentations are provided from Symposium 37, Workforce Development, of the Academy of Human Resource Development (HRD) 2000 Conference Proceedings. "Unemployment and Low-Literacy among Welfare Recipients: Continuum of Literacy Program Models" (Larry G. Martin) presents a continuum of four types of literacy programs--academic, situated context/cognition, integrated literacy-soft skills, and integrated literacy-occupational skills. It matches them with five employment tiers of welfare recipients: unsubsidized employed, subsidized employed, subsidized unemployed (community service jobs), subsidized unemployed (transitions), and unsubsidized unemployed (homeless). "The Relationship between Learning Transfer System Perceptions and Basic Workplace Skills" (Reid A. Bates, Elwood F. Holton III) reports a study that examined variation in individual level learning transfer system perceptions associated with job-related basic skill differences and found significant differences for employees with math and reading skill levels required for their jobs versus those without. "Survey Evidence from College-Bound High School Graduates: Implications for School-to-Work [STW] and Human Resource Development" (Richard L. Hannah) describes early work patterns, reasons for working, and implications in the context of STW literature and the rethinking of evaluative criteria with respect to HRD. The papers contain reference sections. (YLB)
