4. Substance. An on-line tutorial for Trade/WIA program co-enrollment has been developed by Social Policy Research Associates, under a project funded by ETA. SPRA worked with 10 States in Region 5 to find strategies to enhance performance in WIA and TAA dislocated worker programs while co-enrolling.
At a February 2005 Regional Dislocated Worker Round Table in Kansas, SPRA's Vinz Koller gave a presentation using prior year WISARD and TAPR data, plus some polling data from States to show ways to narrow the gap in performance between the Trade and WIA programs while giving better services to Trade participants.
The presentation was refined into an on-line tool which is being shared with States:
