Trident Technical College 1998 Graduate Follow-Up.
Trident Technical Coll., Charleston, SC.
Presents the results of South Carolina's Trident Technical College's (TTC's) 1998 graduate follow-up survey report of 915 TTC graduates. Graduates were surveyed and results were obtained for the following items: graduate goals, employment, placement rates, graduates in related fields, when job were obtained, job finding methods, job locations, job satisfaction, job preparation, salaries, continuing education, satisfaction with education at TTC, processes and services, life skills accomplishments, and demographics by age group, gender, ethnic origin, and attendance characteristics. Graduates were more satisfied with all but one of the processes and services rated (Co-op Services) than they had been since 1991. The campus-wide quality effort could account for this improvement. The 1998 graduates were well satisfied with their education at TTC and felt their education or training prepared them for their jobs. In keeping with national norms, females generally received lower salaries than males. However, 1998 black graduates had a higher median salary than whites, which is contrary to previous years. The appendix includes the State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education graduate placement rate results (1994-1998) for all programs, the allied health sciences, arts and sciences, business technology, community, family and child services, hospitality, tourism and culinary arts, industrial and engineering technology, nursing, and public service according to certificates, associate degrees, and diplomas awarded.
