SPIR DATA BOOK FOR PROGRAM YEAR 1997
Attention Job Training Stakeholders and Providers
Do you know how Federal Job Training Partnership Act Program dollars are being spent?
Is that GED or high school diploma making a difference in employment outcomes for welfare mothers?
Are wages for minority youth program completers competitive in the national marketplace?
These questions and hundreds like them can be answered by using this desktop reference about programs funded through the U.S. Department of Labor's Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA). This book can give you the complete picture of what's happening in each of JTPA's federally funded job training programs serving disadvantaged adults and youth (Titles II-A/C), dislocated workers (Title III) and older workers (Section 204(d)) for the program year ending June 30, 1998. How do programs compare on:
Who is served and how long customers are served
What jobs and wages customers obtain after completing the program
What kind of training is provided including basic education, classroom training and On-The-Job Training
How they are served - such as counseling and job search assistance
Unique in the amount of job training information now publicly available, JTPA's desktop reference includes records on more than 600,000 job training participants enrolled in over 640 local programs. Rich in detail, this book provides:
Program Overseers the data necessary for ensuring taxpayer dollars are being spent in an effective manner;
Program Planners an opportunity to compare and contrast services in order to design the most productive menus of customer services; and
Program Stakeholders with details for evaluating that customers most in need of services receive appropriate assistance in order to obtain quality jobs and wages.
