PARTNERSHIPS WITH THE ADULT EDUCATION CENTER
The Job Service
Although the Workforce Investment Board has designated NIC, the Idaho Commission on Aging, and the Job Service as the shared operators of the One-Stop Center, many of the services of the One-Stop are provided at the Job Service building. The Job Service and Adult Education Center collaborate as follows:
- The Adult Education Center's instructors and staff refer clients to the Job Service by giving them the name of a staff member, so that they can ask for someone specific when they arrive at the busy office, and the Job Service also refers clients to adult education. During 2001-2002, the Job Service referred 71 clients for adult education services.
- Job Service staff invite the Adult Education Center staff to their office to discuss ABE programs and classes, so that they understand how to refer clients appropriately.
- One Job Service staff member has regular hours every week at the Adult Education Center to meet with clients, register them on the Job Service database, and teach them to use the Job Service web site.
- The Job Service develops an individual "plan of action" for all clients, describing what each agency will provide for them. The partners also use a referral slip with all of the names of partners so that they can monitor referrals and do follow up with their clients.
