SUBJECT: Staff Education and Development Traineeship Program
The Staff Education and Development division of the Human Resources Department is pleased to announce that the Traineeship Program has been funded for fiscal year 1996-1997. The Traineeship Program offers the opportunity to compete for selection to participate in carefully planned on-the-job training opportunities. The goal of the Traineeship Program is to enhance an individual's competitiveness for the next feasible job goal upon completion of the traineeship.
The Traineeship Program is an employee development program designed to promote diversity at UCSD. Applicants who meet selection criteria will be considered without regard to gender or ethnicity.
Employees who have identified one of the three objective classifications listed below as their next feasible job goal and who have their supervisor's approval to participate may be eligible to compete for the Traineeship Program. All those who wish to be considered for participation in this program must submit an application.
This year, the Traineeship Program targets the following objective classifications:
Administrative Specialist
Administrative Analyst
Programmer Analyst II
If you have identified one of these three objective classifications as your next feasible job goal, you may be interested in applying for the Traineeship Program.
The major criteria for selection to participate in the Traineeship Program are:
* you are a career status employee past your probationary period;
* your current position is campus-funded;
* you propose a high quality and feasible traineeship plan;
* you demonstrate that the benefits of a short-term, individually-designed traineeship would significantly advance your progress toward achieving your next feasible job goal; and,
* your home department otherwise could not provide such training because of insufficient resources.
When Staff Education and Development receives applications for the Traineeship Program, the program coordinator initiates the screening phase, feasibility assessment, and subsequent proposal development of selected applications. In consultation with the director of Staff Education and Development and the appropriate representative of Human Resources Staffing Services, a selected application is developed into a proposal which specifically delineates a training plan that includes short-term job goal, objectives, activities, training standards, and schedule. After approval by all departments involved in the agreement and plan implementation, the proposal is presented to the Staff Affirmative Action Training Program Committee. Implementation of an individual traineeship proposal is contingent upon the committee's endorsement.
