Vocational Schools: Relation of Curricula in the Fields of Commerce, Banking and Management.
The purpose of this survey was to present the views of the economy regarding the desirable vocational and personal qualifications of those working or preparing to work in office administration. From a list of Israeli businesses employing office workers, 60 were randomly selected and placed into one of four groups depending on the number of employees. Responses to questionnaires were received from 52 of the 60 office managers and business men surveyed. The results indicate a lack of consistency between the assessment at present and the economy's demands for the future regarding the various clerical occupations. Satisfaction was expressed in regard to the level of knowledge in the various subjects of study and the personal qualifications; however, there was an expressed demand for an improvement of the vocational level and personal qualifications for future employees.
