This past summer, ETA announced the OJT web-based toolkit to help state and local workforce professionals expand and strengthen their On-the-Job Training (OJT) strategies. The OJT Toolkit is an online suite of resources that provides state workforce agencies and local OJT providers templates and examples that are customizable to meet their needs. Further, these OJT Toolkit documents allow local providers to quickly and efficiently assess and implement OJT in their area.
Below is what your peers have to say about the toolkit...
Specialist for NYS Dept of Labor at
Broome Workforce NY:
"The OJT Toolkit has been an extremely valuable resource here at Broome Workforce; we have used the sample fliers for OJT to help promote the program our local employers using an eblast. We have received over 25 OJT inquiries in two days as a result!
In addition, the OJT QSAP and checklist have provided us the opportunity to self-evaluate our OJT program and make necessary changes and updates in an efficient and timely manner. As a Workforce area that has incorporated the OJT into their strategy for several years, it is very helpful to review other areas’ programs and policies to help generate ideas for how we can run our program most effectively. It is obvious that a huge amount of work was put into developing the toolkit and we will continue to utilize the available resources. "
From Teri Geisenhof, Supervising Labor Services Representative for NYS Dept of Labor at Broome Workforce NY:
"I found that the WorkforceOne OJT Toolkit was an invaluable source of information in helping me to develop the PowerPoint presentation for our customers. I also used the Toolkit to develop a handout (also attached). With the help of the Toolkit I was able to quickly develop the products I needed in order to best serve our customers."
