The latest report of “Key Performance Indicators” that includes data from Ontario’s community colleges is showing Lambton College graduates get jobs at a higher rate than their provincial counterparts.
A media release from Lambton College says some 85.8 per cent of the school’s 2014-15 graduates reported finding employment within six months of graduation, a rate that is more than two per cent higher than the provincial average of 83.6%.
“We are very pleased to report our students are finding careers that utilize their education and training within such a short time of graduating,” says Judith Morris, President & CEO, Lambton College. “Lambton College has worked very hard to align programs and training with the needs of industry, and our students continue to secure a wide range of employment opportunities when they graduate.”
In addition to successful graduate employment rates, Lambton College also ranked above the provincial average in every single category including Graduate Satisfaction, Employer Satisfaction, Student Satisfaction and Graduation Rate.
“These results are a great indicator of just how successful we’ve been as a college in ensuring our students receive the support, education and training they need to succeed in a competitive job market,” says Morris. “Our career-focused programs, exceptional faculty and expanding facilities have allowed us to continually provide students with the skills they need to embrace real-world challenges with knowledge and confidence. This report reinforces that a Lambton College education leads to employment.”
The annual survey evaluates all of the province’s 24 community colleges through five KPIs. Results are based on independently gathered figures from Ontario community college students.
