GRADUATE FOLLOW-UP, 1966.
Connecticut State Dept. of Education, Hartford.
PLACEMENT DATA ARE REPORTED FOR 5,066 VOCATIONAL GRADUATES FROM 83 SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES IN CONNECTICUT REPRESENTING PROGRAM FIELDS IN VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE, DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION, HEALTH EDUCATION, HOME ECONOMICS FOR GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT, BUSINESS AND OFFICE EDUCATION, TECHNICAL EDUCATION, AND TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION. OF THE 5,066 GRADUATES, 4,139 COMPLETED SECONDARY LEVEL PROGRAMS, 927 WERE GRADUATES OF POST-SECONDARY PROGRAMS IN COMMUNITY COLLEGES, STATE TECHNICAL INSTITUTES, AND VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL SCHOOLS. NEARLY 82 PERCENT OF THE GRADUATES AVAILABLE FOR PLACEMENT WERE EMPLOYED IN OCCUPATIONS UTILIZING SPECIALIZED SKILLS ACQUIRED IN VOCATIONAL COURSES. THE MEAN HOURLY WAGE FOR THIS GROUP WAS $1.91. APPROXIMATELY 12 PERCENT OF AVAILABLE GRADUATES WERE EMPLOYED IN NONRELATED OCCUPATIONS. ABOUT 20 PERCENT OF THE GRADUATES CONTINUED THEIR EDUCATION ON A FULL-TIME BASIS. ONLY 54 GRADUATES OR 1.06 PERCENT WERE UNEMPLOYED, AN UNEMPLOYMENT RATE WHICH COMPARES VERY FAVORABLY WITH THE ANNUAL AVERAGE FOR CONNECTICUT OF 3.1 PERCENT. FUTURE FOLLOW-UP STUDIES SHOULD DETERMINE THE NUMBER OF GRADUATES PURSUING MORE ADVANCED KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE VOCATIONAL TRAINING ALREADY ACQUIRED. (WB)
