National Centre for Vocational Education Research, Leabrook (Australia).
This publication presents detailed information from the responses of over 63,000 Technical and Further Education (TAFE) graduates and 4,100 TAFE module completers (non-graduates of the TAFE program) to a survey about the types of students who undertook training during 1998. Section 1 compares key results for graduates and module completers. It presents in narrative and figures these results: percent of graduates by key outcome measures for 1995, 1997, 1998, and 1999; employment or further study of graduates; employment outcomes; movement to higher skilled occupations; satisfaction outcomes; main reason for doing the training; reasons for not continuing to study (module completers only); and student profile. Section 2 lists information that the survey collected. Section 3 presents the survey findings in two parts. Part 1, on graduates, provides information on employment outcomes, satisfaction outcomes, further study, course of study, and student characteristics. Part 2, on module completers, provides information on employment outcomes, satisfaction outcomes, reasons for not continuing to study, training undertaken, and student characteristics. Sections 1-3 contain 36 figures. Section 4 consists of 59 tables that present graduate and module completer data. Section 5 contains frequency counts for all survey questions and additional data items, such as responses per institute. Appendixes include explanatory notes, glossary, brochure, cover letter, and questionnaires. (YLB)
