Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1982 
39 p. 

Barriers to the linkage of vocational education and structured apprenticeship programs and facilitators useful in overcoming the barriers were identified. Subjects were 46 people who were interviewed to identify potential barriers and facilitators to linkage and 288 people who completed a survey questionnaire to verify the identified barriers and facilitators. The samples were comprised of state vocational administrators, vocational education students, vocational education instructors, Bureau of Apprenticeship Training representatives, apprenticeship committee members, apprenticeship instructors, and apprentices. Identified deterrents to a closer linkage between vocational education and registered apprenticeship programs were of two kinds--those on which personnel from both organizations agreed and those that one agency perceived the other as creating. Respondents in all agency groups clearly believed increased communication and planning between vocational education programs and industry to be essential to resolution of any barrier. A high level of agreement in regard to cooperative planning efforts existed in which apprenticeship committees would provide more feedback into the development of vocational education programs. (Seven data tables are included.) (YLB)
