Graphic Communications Industry Survey. Final Report.
Robertson, Von H.
The purpose of this study was to determine the need for additional graphic arts programs in Utah's public schools and technical colleges. Personal interviews were conducted in 40 plants and 189 questionnaires were mailed, including some to the 40 interviewed plants. The study revealed: (1) a ratio of less than 100 trainee completions to more than 200 estimated job openings, and (2) a lack of production experience on the part of trainees. An analysis of the findings in terms of industry requirements versus school outputs indicate that an expansion of the number of graphic arts courses at the post-secondary level in Utah was desirable.
