Community Partnerships is a newly developed program within the Employment Development division of Employment Development/Literacy. CP programs have a specific 'employment-oriented' focus, and are run over a shorter time frame than most regular literacy programs. Because of LWW's focus on employment, we felt that such a comparison (while small) might provide us with useful data.
Limitations and uses of the methodology
What the study does provide however, is important preliminary information and insights into possible trends within the field of literacy and employment training. LWW will thus be used as a jumping-off point for further research (the LWW Longitudinal Research Project) that will utilize a more comprehensive, case study approach.
