California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Bureau of Business Education.
Over 47 percent of the Manpower Development and Training Act (MDTA) projects have been in the field of business. This report reviews progress in developing these training programs in California over the past two years and identifies characteristics of some of the procedures involved in organizing, supervising, and evaluating such training. By June 30, 1964, 1,371 people had been enrolled in MDTA stenographic training; 1,256 in MDTA clerk-typists courses, and 958 in all other business courses. Of these, 1,965 completed training, 683 were in training on June 30, 1964, and 937 were classified as drop-outs. Of those who had completed training and for whom job placement figures were available, 70 percent of the stenographers, 64 percent of the clerk-typists, and 56 percent of all other business trainees were placed in training related jobs. Characteristics of trainees, some problems and issues in MDTA needing research, opinions of persons involved in the program for evaluation, and a follow-up study by Fresno City College of a stenographic MDTA program are included.
