A Study of Non-University Post-Secondary and Continuing Educational Services in Alberta 1970-71. Program-Service Inventory; Master Planning Monograph 3.
Fisher, Grant L.
A survey, commissioned by the Alberta College Commission as part of its master planning project, was conducted to identify existing programs, services, and enrollments in post-secondary, non-university and continuing education in the province. A survey instrument was sent to all licensed trade and business schools, adult education centers, private colleges, officials of the Departments of Health and Education, and other institutions. Among the findings are: (1) there were more than 80 specific institutions offering full-time programs in post-secondary education, with a total of 306 full-time programs; (2) total full-time enrollment for 1970-71 was 32,735; total part-time and continuing education enrollment was 70,970; (3) full-time programs varied in duration from one week to three weeks, with one program extending to four years; (4) about 1/3 of the programs were classified as industrial and technical, accounting for almost 1/2 of the total enrollment; (5) the two regions centered at Edmonton and Calgary accounted for most of the enrollment in community service programs; (6) of the full-time students, slightly more than 1/4 were Manpower-supported and about 1/3 were 25 years old or older; and (7) more than 60 percent of the students were males. A copy of the survey instrument is appended. (Author/KM)
