Florida Vocational Graduates' Follow-Up Outcomes.
This document presents the Florida Vocational Graduates' Follow-Up Outcomes, which include Associate in Science, College Credit Certificates, and Vocational Credit Certificates. The total number of vocational graduates increased by 27.9% between 1990-91 and 1993-94. Females experienced greater increases than males both in terms of percents and numbers. Most of the numeric gain was for white females. Hispanic females exhibited the highest percentage change. The overall change for males was 25.4%. There was more variation in the percentage changes among the ethnic groups for males than for females. Once vocational students have graduated, they are tracked via the Florida Education Training and Placement Information Program for one of four possible outcomes. During the four years displayed in the charts, 59-63% of all graduates were employed in their field of study. An additional 7% were working, but were not employed in the field for which they were trained. Ten to 12% were continuing their education, and 20-23% were not found. The percentage employed in their field tended to be higher for Whites than for either Blacks or Hispanics, while the percentage for Blacks tended to be higher than for Hispanics. However, more Hispanics were continuing their education than blacks, and more blacks were continuing their education than whites. These same relationships were found for both males and females. (VWC)
