There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  Improving the Quality of Training Under JTPA
Release Date :
Abstract :
  JTPA training is intended to impart job-related skills to economically disadvantaged individuals to improve both their immediate post program employment and their long-term employment potential. Some observers of JTPA job training programs have argued that the system places too much emphasis on short-term training for entry-level jobs, and not enough emphasis on services that will enable participants to obtain "quality" jobs with potential for career advancement. To assess the quality of the training currently provided under JTPA, this study took a close look at the program designs and service delivery practices in 15 randomly-selected SDAs around the country during Program Year 1988, and reviewed the Title II-A training received by adult participants in 43 different occupational training programs.
