Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1988 
56 p. 

The status and potential of links between apprenticeship and cooperative education were studied to determine whether and how resources should be expended to increase and strengthen those linkages. Data were collected through a literature review; from the U.S. Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training (BAT); and from the departments of education and cooperative education coordinators in 41 states and 9 large cities. The following are among the findings and recommendations: (1) strengthened linkages would help the BAT achieve its objectives of playing a more effective role in preparing youth for employment, developing a more flexible labor pool, expanding into new occupations, and involving more women, disadvantaged, and handicapped students; (2) the few effective programs linking secondary cooperative education and apprenticeship should be presented as models; (3) educational and apprenticeship professionals are interested in establishing and strengthening linkage programs but are hampered by barriers such as lack of experience and knowledge, few resources, and lack of administrative support; (4) once a viable program is underway, state and local educational agencies and BAT should be able to maintain effective local and state programs; and (5) occupations and states with effective cooperative education provide opportunities to expand and increase apprenticeships. (Appendices--the bulk of the document--provide details on the study methodology and results, definitions and descriptions of apprenticeship and cooperative education, a 19-item bibliography, an annotated list of National Child Labor Committee publications, and a copy of their pamphlet, "Everybody Benefits from Cooperative Education.")
