Study of the Status of FY 83 CETA Coordination and Program Activities. Final Report; Activities Study. Research Report Series.
Bailis, Lawrence Neil
A study examined Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) coordination and program activities for fiscal year 1983. To gather data for the study, researchers reviewed literature on the delivery of CETA services, compared these delivery practices with delivery strategies employed in such CETA predecessors as the Manpower Training and Development Act of 1962 and the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, obtained information about the patterns of service delivery that were used by 45 (out of a sample of 50) CETA prime sponsors in FY 1983, and tabulated these data in a way that would facilitate comparisons with the patterns emerging under the Job Training Partnership Act of 1982. All of the prime sponsors providing information for the study devoted at least some resources to classroom vocational skills training, and all but one of them devoted at least some resources to on-the-job training. Of the 37 prime sponsors who provided reasonably complete information about the services they offered, 14 ran English-as-a-Second-Language programs and 25 provided some remedial classes. Prime sponsors were by far the most frequent deliverers of intake and assessment services, which included: (1) outreach and recruitment; (2) intake and eligibility determination; (3) assessment and preparation of employability plans; (4) counselling; and (5) referral of clients to other agencies. Community-based organizations were utilized the second most frequently for three of the five intake and assessment services examined. (MN)
