The Florida State Advisory Council on Vocational Education funded a study to determine the extent to which programs involved in vocational training represent a consistent, integrated, and coordinated approach to meeting vocational education, employment, and training needs of Florida, and to determine present and emerging patterns of governance of programs included in the study. Eight agencies who had working agreements with the Florida Division of Vocational Education and who deliver specific vocational instruction participated in the study. Data was collected through interviews with county and state level personnel in their respective agencies. Among the findings were (1) the various agencies have a high degree of consistency within their own agencies; (2) working relationships among agencies appear to correspond to the flow of money; (3) local agencies are not communicating to the same extent as state agencies; (4) program overlap was minimal; (5) the number of local agencies having working agreements with other agencies was low; (6) agencies studied were serving the minority population at a level equal to or greater than the minority representation in the county population; and (7) no attempt was being made at the local level to coordinate the number of trainees accepted in the various programs with labor market demands. (Recommendations of the authors are included.) (LRA)
