Federal training and work programs in the sixties by Sar A Levitan( Book )

6 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a time when many manpower programs have been charged with gimmickry and refunded without adequate assessment of impact and techniques, this volume attempts to develop a broad base of factual and analytical knowledge by which some judgement can be made of the gaps in manpower programs and policies as well as needed inputs. Part 1 traces development of manpower programs aimed at improving the employability of those labor force participants who are relatively disadvantaged in the competitive labor market. Parts 2 through 8 review the seven major programs funded by the Federal government. A final section focuses on administrative problems of the $2 billion Federally-funded manpower package and provides a prescription for functional restructuring of manpower programs discussed in the volume. This is an enlargement and revision of an earlier paper, "Making Sense of Federal Manpower Policy." (Editor/DM)

Career education in the middle/junior high school by Rupert Nelson Evans( Book )

3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is the purpose of the book to argue and demonstrate that career education can make a vital contribution to the needs of middle school and junior high school youth. Academic subject matter and skills gained in the classroom must have relevance to the students' future work and careers. Among the key concepts involved are: (1) the primary goal of education is to prepare students for life; (2) knowledge, and the ability to apply it, is the schools' essential product; (3) all subject matter in the curriculum has career relevance; and (4) pointing up the career relevance of subject matter aids in motivating the student and reinforcing his understanding of the material. The volume is organized as follows: (1) the nature of career development and related research; (2) career development practices in ongoing programs and as reported in professional journals; (3) integrating career education into five basic academic areas; (4) applying career education concepts in the fine and practical arts; (5) work, simulated work, and work observation; (6) organizing career education--a summary of views; and (7) reform initiatives and current innovations in career education.

Employment and training programs for youth : what works best for whom? by Garth L Mangum( Book )

10 editions published between 1978 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using a synthesis of available literature written between 1960 and 1977, the study reported in this document focuses on the assessment of (1) employment and training services for youth; (2) techniques which have been used in providing employment and training services to youth; (3) administrative practices which have either enhanced or vitiated employment and training services for youth; and (4) services designed for specific target groups, such as minority youth or the handicapped. This study is divided into ten chapters. Chapter 1 explores the realism of the criteria which are often applied to the evaluation of youth programs. Chapter two contains an analysis of youth unemployment statistics and a description of the modern milieu in which employment and training programs for youth are conducted. Chapter three discusses techniques used by program administrators to reach certain target groups and the techniques used in their needs. Chapter 4 considers the strategy of subsidized employment as the major attempt to alleviate youth unemployment. In-school programs, both training and employment, are covered in chapter 5. Chapter 6 covers three types of on-the-job training. The effectiveness of employment and personal counseling and various techniques for supplying placement services are discussed in chapters 7 and 8, respectively. Chapter 9 focuses on what works for specific target populations, and chapter 10 summarizes the implications of the study's findings for future policy with respect to employment and training programs for youth. Each of the major component chapters (3-8) concludes with a section on program design. (Bm)
