Funding, enrollments, and outcomes are reported for the programs offered during 1979-1980 by New York City Technical College's Division of Continuing Education and Extension Services. The report's introduction analyzes enrollment in the division, summarizes external evaluation of selected programs, and examines problems of staffing, space, and the assignment of credit for technical courses. Subsequently, the report's nine chapters discuss the year's activities and accomplishments of: (1) the division's tuition programs, which provide adult students with entry-level job skills, skill upgrading, and training for certification and licensure; (2) the Adult Vocational Counseling Center; (3) vocational programs for deaf adults; (4) training programs for women in non-traditional occupations; (5) technical training programs for disadvantaged adults in the areas of digital electronics, machine tool trades, welding, electronic assembly, and food services; (6) technical programs to upgrade the skills of transit workers, biomedical technicians, and day care center cooks; (7) public symposia on prenatal diagnosis and hearing amplification for the elderly; (8) adult literacy and learning programs and extension services to the Brooklyn House of Detention; and (9) programs for older adults. With variations, these narratives summarize enrollment, funding, recruitment, instruction, and placement. The report concludes with tables illustrating enrollment and funding sources. (JP)
