Vocational-Technical and Adult Education 1974 Student and Employer Follow-Up Surveys in Sarasota County Florida.
The 1974 followup program of former vocational, technical, and adult education students of Sarasota County (Florida) and an employer followup survey are presented in the document. The student survey was sent to 778 vocational preparatory graduates and leavers and 486 were returned. Information was sought concerning their employment status, educational status, source of employment, permission to contact employer, relevance of their training, salary, and attitudes towards the vocational program. An unemployment rate ranging from 5.2% to 13.5% was identified and its implications for future placement and assistance noted. An employer survey was sent to community employers with the approval of former students. The employees' job performance and related personal characteristics were rated and showed that employers were generally well satisfied. New changes to further improve the followup survey are discussed. A list of references is included. Appended materials cover the following areas: survey schedule; survey materials; 1973 followup program completions; form letter to unemployed students; list of past reports; and summaries of student and employer surveys at the State, county, secondary preparatory, adult preparatory, health occupations, and high school levels.
