Grants and Contracts Details

Description

The Center for Business and Economic research will serve as the external evaluator for the Code Louisville Job Training program initiated by Kentuckiana Works. As an evaluator we will work with Kentuckiana works to measure the outcomes, both short and long run, of the Code Louisville training paradigm compared to three control groups: completely on line computer training, training through conventional classrooms, and no job training. Our collaborator, IQS Research will be collecting qualitative data through one]on]one interviews with executives who hire the training program participants, one]on]one interviews with employed training program participants, focus groups with currently enrolled program participants, and focus groups with program mentors. CBER will collect data on employment and earnings outcomes, including data on completion rates, employment rates in the IT sector, length of time to obtain employment, length of time in employment, as well as earnings profiles. We will analyze these data using state of the art econometric approaches to estimate the benefit of the program to workers, and will use cost data provided by Kentuckiana Works to assess the costs associated with the service.
