Employment Opportunities, Training Needs and Vocational Education for the Graphic Arts in Missouri.
Rayford, Erwin William
The purpose of this study was to ascertain the current and projected employment and training needs for printers in Missouri, the predicted effects of automation on employment and training, and the nature and scope of the vocational printing programs in Missouri. Data were collected from the managers of 265 printing industries, 126 vocational printing graduates, 13 vocational printing instructors in Missouri, and administrators in 11 schools. Some findings were that: (1) From 1962 through 1966, 329 printing students graduated from the 11 schools, (2) Seventy-three percent of these were initially employed in a printing or related trade, (3) The managers, instructors and graduates thought that the schools should provide a broad, basic training, and (4) The instructors and graduates thought that the schools were doing a better job of training than did the industrial respondents. Specific conclusions were that the schools appeared adequately equipped to provide training in cold-type composition and duplicator operation, but not in offset presswork or on tape or electronically controlled machines, and that the effects of automation were not really known.
