1980 Manitoba Community Colleges Follow-Up Survey.
Manitoba Dept. of Labor and Manpower, Winnipeg.
Data and findings are presented from a 1980 follow-up survey of 3,505 students who graduated from Manitoba community colleges between August 1978 and July 1979. The report first provides information on the labor market outcomes of survey respondents, including employment status, earnings, average hours worked per week, relationship of job to training, geographical distribution of employment, extent to which skills obtained in college were used in present occupation, length of time taken to get first job after graduation, and whether respondents had held a training-related job since graduation. In the next two sections, data on the migration patterns of graduates and on respondents' post-graduation, continuing education experiences and plans are presented. Finally, data on the 1979 graduates are compared to those obtained on 1978 graduates. Major findings, based on a 58% response rate, indicated that: (1) 83.4% of the graduates were employed in training-related jobs; (2) 94.6% were participating in the labor market with average weekly earnings of $246.99; (3) 88.4% were working in Manitoba; (4) 26.6% were continuing or had plans to continue their education; and (5) on an average, it took graduates 4.5 weeks to obtain their first job after graduation. Appendices include the survey instrument and additional data. (HB)
