Lessons from research on job training and supportive services

The Institute for Women's Policy Research's June 21 webinar Job Training and Supportive Services: New Research on Support Availability and Models for Cost-Effective Service Delivery presented the findings from IWPR's nationwide survey of 265 job training administrators on the prevalence and challenges surrounding support service provision.   Their research sought to answer the following questions:
  • Which supportive services are most critical to success in job training programs?
  • How widely available are these supports?
  • Is there evidence that supportive services improve outcomes?
  • What are some strategies for increasing the impact and leveraging resources to access support services?

There is no recording of the webinar on the website but the presentation (PDF) is available.   In it you will find data that can be used to identify the needs met and unmet of job training program participants.   An example of data from the research is shown below.
