Study of the status of FY 83 CETA coordination and program activities : final report : coordination study by Lawrence Neil Bailis( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the status of coordination at State and local levels between the activities funded by the Service Delivery Areas and other employment and training programs on the one hand, and between these programs and private sector employers on the other. The status of coordination in Fiscal 1983, the last year of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (ceta), is analyzed in order to lay the groundwork for future assessments of the effectiveness of the new Federal Job Training Partnership Act (jtpa) in improving coordination. Specific mechanisms to promote coordination as well as factors hampering it are reviewed. The highest levels of coordination are found to have been with public education agencies and public employment. The most striking finding for future employment and training systems is said to be the low level of coordination encountered with the Work Incentive (win) program, which was also the program with the fewest coordination mechanisms. It is determined that coordination between ceta Prime Sponsors and other agencies was generally good, although the presence of coordinating structures was not always accompanied by mechanisms to promote the results of coordination. The report concludes by recommending that further attention be paid to factors that have promoted and impeded coordination between Prime Sponsors and the public Employment Service. (Rdn)

A New Field Emerges: College Access Programs. Executive Overview. Volume I by Lawrence Neil Bailis( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This volume, first in a series, contains a literature review of the college access field, as well as case studies and lessons for community leaders interested in designing or reforming college access programs. The college access field contains many well thought out programs that are widely believed to be effective in helping minority and low-income youth overcome barriers in their efforts to get to college. For the most part, these beliefs have not been based on the kind of social science evaluation techniques usually believed necessary to demonstrate program effectiveness. Conduct of a sophisticated analysis of CollegeBound (Baltimore, Maryland) operations and outcomes, site visits and analyses of six urban college access programs, and a review of the literature on college access programs leads to three basic conclusions. The Baltimore CollegeBound program evaluation provides the best empirical evidence that a college access program can have a demonstrable impact on college attendance for some types of students at some types of programs. A second conclusion is that, to be successful, a college access program must reflect the existing realities and relationships within school systems and between school systems and communities. It is therefore both inappropriate and misleading to look for one best way to design and carry out college access activities or to rank order programs. A third conclusion is that in the Baltimore CollegeBound program the benefits far outweigh program costs. Findings from this report are used to make specific recommendations to the Baltimore program, and recommendations for college access programs in other cities that center on improved cooperation, access to information, networking, and research to improve these programs through a variety of approaches.

Community-Based Organizations and Vocational Education: The Path to Partnership. Information Series No. 319 by Lawrence Neil Bailis( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Community-based organizations (CBOs) have been an integral part of the employment and training programs of the past two decades and have provided a wide variety of services to youth and adults alike. The vast differences between different CBOs make it impossible to draw definitive, generalizable conclusions about them. It appears, however, that partnerships between school systems and CBOs (particularly in the area of prevocational education and supportive services) can reattract to the system people who might otherwise have given up and can provide disadvantaged youth and adults the fundamental and basic skills needed to succeed in secondary and postsecondary programs. The Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act has laid the foundation and provided the funding for new partnerships between CBOs and vocational education. Technical barriers to coordination can be overcome by adopting longer-range planning horizons, face-to-face meetings between vocational educators and cbo staff (to eliminate false stereotypes), developing suitable accountability procedures, and contracting with CBOs that have demonstrated the ability to manage and account for funds. A variety of program models are possible, including vocational orientation and counseling, remedial education, career education in an alternative high school setting, employment and work experience programs, and combined/comprehensive programs. (Models of 10 exemplary programs and sources of information about specific CBOs are appended.) (Mn)
The More Things Change...a Study of the Status of Py 85 Jtpa Coordination and Py 84 Jtpa Program Activities. Research Report Series by Lawrence Neil Bailis( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A study documented and assessed changes in patterns of service delivery that followed the implementation of the Job Training Partnership Act of 1982 (jtpa). It focused specifically on the kinds of training activities and services that have been implemented and the degree to which they have been coordinated with related programs. Two complementary approaches were used: review of the jtpa implementation research literature and conduct of "panel studies." Data were collected from 45 prime sponsors during the last full year of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (ceta) and 45 jtpa service delivery areas (SDAs). Comparisons of activities funded under ceta and jtpa revealed that the typical prime sponsor/SDA spent fewer funds per client under jtpa, the typical sda spent larger proportions of its funding on class-sized vocational skills training and on-the-job training under jtpa than under ceta, and there have not been appreciable changes in the kinds of training offered. The most striking study results in the area of coordination involved the absence of change in coordination that has followed the transition from ceta to jtpa. A number of important issues were raised: causes and results of reductions in participant costs, a decline in service to youth, absence of progress in implementing customized training courses, and lack of increases in coordination.
