|SUBJECT||:||One-Stop Resource Sweep of Training and Technical Assistance Resources|
Purpose. To announce the completion and distribution of the One-Stop Training and Technical Assistance Resources collection which includes a broad base of curricula and other resources to assist in the One-Stop system building effort.
Background. In response to requests from One-Stop implementation States for training resources appropriate to the One-Stop system, a National curricula "sweep" funded jointly by the U.S. Department of Labor and the State of California was conducted, resulting in a collection which includes listings of over 350 resources (courses, videos, books, audio tapes, etc.) available from private, public, and not-for-profit sources.
Resource Collection. This One-Stop Training and Technical Assistance Resources collection includes information about: Skill Clusters; Delivery Modes; Delivery Options; and Support Materials to help the user identify key information when searching for the most desirable training and technical assistance resource. It is sorted in numerous ways including by vendor and by State to help further identify the most appropriate training resources. Delivery options include peer-to-peer, professional vendor, self-study, distance learning, and consulting. Many of the resources are free or available on a material reimbursement basis.
While the Resources Collection contains a significant number of offerings, it is by no means all-inclusive. We anticipate that the Resources Collection will be greatly augmented through the One-Stop Capacity Building information gathering project currently underway. The Resources Collection is a vehicle for valuable information sharing; however, as noted in the disclaimer at the front of the Collection, inclusion of materials in the document does not constitute or imply their endorsement by the Department.
Distribution and Use of the One-Stop Training and Technical Assistance Resources. Under separate cover, State One-Stop Leads will each receive 10 copies of the curriculum sweep for State use along with one copy each for open One-Stop Career Centers in their State. The copies should arrive by the end of May 1998.
This Resources Collection is available on the Internet at ttrc.doleta.gov/onestop/collection. Within the next few months the offerings included in the Resources Collection will also be available through the America's Learning Exchange pilot site www.alx.org.
All recipients are free to duplicate this information.
Action. One-Stop Leads are requested to send one copy of the One-Stop Training and Technical Assistance Resources collection to each open One-Stop Career Center in their State. They are also encouraged to share copies with their other system partners.
