A Study of Vocational Trainers' Professional Satisfaction in Taiwan Republic of China.
Fang, Rong-Jyue
Vocational trainers at 15 vocational training centers in Taiwan were surveyed by mail to determine if the satisfaction of the trainers was related to in-service experience, age, job title, method of teaching, education level, factory experience, and teacher training. Other variables in the study included vocational training administration, vocational training laws and regulations, and vocational training curriculum and instruction. Of 649 questionnaire packets distributed, 420 usable ones were received, a return rate of 64.7 percent. Research findings showed high positive correlations between age and professional satisfaction and working experience and professional satisfaction. Vocational trainers were unhappy about the personnel questions included. They also complained about recruiting, lack of opportunities for on-the-job training, few chances for promotion, and heavy work loads. Vocational trainers expect real improvement from the current administration. They also expect a social movement to assist in retaining confidence in vocational certificates.
