Education after University: Degree Graduates in Vocational Programs. AIR 1999 Annual Forum Paper.
Inkster, B. Keith
This study compared completers of a postsecondary technology program in British Columbia based upon whether they had a university degree prior to entering the applied two-year technology training program. Program completers (n=1,053) were surveyed one year after completion and included nearly 300 university graduates. Subjects had also been surveyed on entering the program concerning previous postsecondary education, previous employment, and views on work and education. Analysis of survey responses found no significant differences between the two groups on such factors as "time to find job,""hours of work week," and "monthly salary". Only "age" was significantly different, a finding explained by the generally older age of those with prior university degrees. Degree holders, however, valued their university experience highly.
