Formal Occupational Training of Adult Workers; Its Extent, Nature, and Use. Manpower/Automation Research Monograph No. 2.
Bedell, Mary; Bowlby, Roger
Workers between the ages of 22 and 64 who had completed less than 3 years of college accounted for 52.1 million of the 60.8 million adults in the civilian labor force in 1963. A representative sample of this group was surveyed to determine the extent of their education and whether they had participated in any formal occupational training programs in high school, junior colleges, technical institutes, special schools, correspondence schools, company training schools, apprenticeship, or the Armed Forces. They were also asked to designate the occupations or fields in which they had received training, how much training they had taken, and whether they had completed it. Finally, the workers in the sample group were questioned concerning their use of training in employment and other ways of learning jobs. This report summarizes the survey findings, analyzes the data, examines the implications of the findings, and makes suggestions for further research. Charts and tables supplement the narrative, and the questionnaire is appended. (CH)
