Vocational Technical and Adult Education Student Follow-Up Study of 1974-1975 Completions.
The survey population for the study consisted of 1,025 Vocational Preparatory completions in Sarasota County, Florida, from whom a 63% response rate was obtained. Information was sought concerning their availability for employment, employment experience, relevance of education to employment, place of work, wages, method used in securing work, present occupation, and rating of the quality of education. Fifty-five pages of the document contain the tabulated responses, without discussion, presented separately for all programs, health occupations programs, industrial programs, office occupations programs, secondary students, and postsecondary students. The 8% unemployment rate for the group surveyed was well below county and State averages for the same time period. Of those employed 64% felt that their present job was related to their training. Of the sample 22% were involved in some form of postsecondary training, of which about one-half were in programs related to their previous vocational training. When asked to rate the quality of the training they received 89% responded at the "good to excellent" levels. The survey form is included. (SA)
