US job-training review emphasizes data, employers

Print | Front Page | Email this story

WASHINGTON (AP) — A six-month review of federal job-training programs concludes that the government needs to better engage U.S. employers, improve the use of data, and boost apprenticeship programs so workers can earn while they train.

The White House is releasing the results of a report developed under the leadership of Vice President Joe Biden. The report says the government is working to tailor training and grants to better match jobs that are in demand. The government is also adding employment outcome measures to all federal programs.

The report also stresses the need for regional partnerships and for programs that provide stepping stones for a seamless transition from one level of education to the next.

Obama on Tuesday will also sign bipartisan legislation aimed at improving business engagement and accountability in federally-funded programs.
