Survey of School Leavers in the Rotorua/Eastern Bay of Plenty Area, 1975-1977.
New Zealand Dept. of Education, Wellington.
The surveys described in this report were conducted to provide information needed for the planning of a community college in the Taupo/Tokoroa/Eastern Bay of Plenty Area. As noted in Chapter I, three surveys were conducted: (1) a survey of fifth, sixth, and seventh form pupils to gather information on their characteristics, plans, and geographic mobility influences; (2) a survey of school leavers to gather data on characteristics, educational and career plans, reasons for leaving school, and geographic mobility; and (3) a follow-up study of the school leavers one year after they left school to determine their subsequent activities. The next 12 chapters provide survey data, in many cases broken down by student age, sex, ethnic group, and socioeconomic status. Chapter II looks at the basic characteristics of the students when they left school. Chapter III considers students' reasons for leaving school. Chapter IV examines students' first activities upon leaving school. Chapter V focuses on reasons for choosing their employment destination. Chapter VI considers students' length of time in and reasons for discontinuing their first activity upon leaving school. Chapter VII focuses on those who took a temporary job after leaving school. Chapter VIII looks at student activities one year after leaving school. Chapter IX investigates the characteristics of respondents' present jobs. Chapters X, XI, and XII look into factors related to job stability, unemployment, and geographic mobility. Chapter XIII contrasts student plans and actual activities. Questionnaires are appended.
