Technical Education Placement Report, Fiscal Year 1983: Report to the Chancellor.
Ohio State Board of Regents, Columbus. Office of Two-Year Campuses.
Because technical education represents a considerable expenditure of Ohio state resources, an annual survey is conducted to determine the employment status of technical school graduates. Every year each institution offering technical education programs is asked to report the total number of degrees awarded in each program offered, the number of those graduates placed in jobs relating or not relating to their technical training, and the number of graduates reporting themselves as available for employment but unemployed. Statewide findings, based on an overall response rate of 89.4%, included the following: (1) 47 postsecondary institutions awarded 12,249 technical associate degrees in 1983, a 3.8% increase over 1982; (2) degrees in the business technologies accounted for slightly more than 40% of all degrees awarded; (3) 10.7% of the graduates were continuing their education, 13.3% were unavailable for employment, and 91.5% of those available for employment were working; and (4) Ohio's associate degree graduates experienced an unemployment rate only slightly more than half of the national rate for persons aged 20-24. Findings are provided for business, engineering/industry, health, agricultural/natural resources, and public service technolgoies, and problems with the performance of particular programs are identified.
