Leisure Education and Employment in BC [British Columbia]: An Analysis of Selected Relationships and Needs.
Olenick, Norman F. E.; And Others
In order to assess the effect of community college programs in British Columbia aimed at training workers in urban recreation services, and to determine the need for expansion of such training programs, a comprehensive 5-month study was conducted in 1975-76. The study and research methods included: (1) the compilation and analysis of historical data relative to the current employment preparation programs, and other preparation opportunities; (2) the design, distribution, return and analysis of a questionnaire for graduates of the five existing community college training programs; (3) the design, distribution, return and analysis of a questionnaire for a sample of recreation employers; (4) the conducting of nine regional meetings throughout British Columbia, through the Leisure Services Branch Consultants, for public discussion with a study team member; (5) correspondence with a broad representative number of community recreation agencies and provincial recreation organizations indicating the scope of the study project, and inviting the submission of briefs. This document reports the outcome of these five study components, and makes a number of recommendations in three areas: (1) for government initiation; (2) for education initiation; (3) for the leisure and recreation field's initiation. Detailed findings of individual studies are included. (Author/NHM)
