Educational Needs Assessment of Adults in the Globe-Miami Area. Final Report.
Eastern Arizona Coll., Thatcher.
In order to identify vocational programs which would meet the educational desires and aspirations of the community and the manpower training needs of business and industry, Eastern Arizona College (EAC) conducted a needs assessment of the Globe-Miami area. During the Spring semester of 1973-74, existing demographic and other data were reviewed; a questionnaire was sent to high school juniors, seniors, their parents, and selected EAC students; a second questionnaire was sent to a ten percent random sample of the adults residing in the area; and a third questionnaire was sent to local businesses and industries. Existing and potential employment opportunities and the amount of training available through other institutions and agencies were also analyzed. Survey results and final analysis of the data are presented. Identified target groups included the handicapped, persons needing job upgrading, school dropouts, senior citizens, and women returning to the labor market. It was concluded that the vocational programs that would meet the needs of both the community and business and industry were: Business, Sales/Mid-Management, and Secretarial; Auto/Diesel Mechanics; Justice Administration; Home Economics; and Electronics, Drafting, and Mining Technology. The questionnaires are appended. (DC)
