St. Clair College graduates are excelling in the job market, with 87.5% of the college’s newest graduates working within six months of graduation, according to Key Performance Indicators released Wednesday. This exceeds the provincial average of 86.2%

The graduate employment rate is among the data included in the Key Performance Indicator survey that is independently administered on behalf of Ontario’s 24 colleges and the provincial government.

In addition to the employment rate, 84% of St. Clair College graduates said they were satisfied or very satisfied with the overall quality of the learning experiences in their programs, compared to the provincial average of 78.3% and 89% said they were satisfied or very satisfied their programs gave them the knowledge and skills that will be useful in their future careers.

The survey also showed that St. Clair graduates expressed a high level of satisfaction six months after graduating, with 82.8% saying they were satisfied or very satisfied, compared to 79.9% provincially.

Nearly 78% of students said they were satisfied or very satisfied with the overall quality of the facilities in the college, compared to 74.8% provincially.

Overall, 79.8% of students were satisfied or very satisfied with St. Clair College, while provincially the number was 75.7%.

“I view our province-wide, top-eight results in the surveys dealing with academic satisfaction as a well-deserved recognition of our exceptional faculty and staff,” said St. Clair College President Patti France. “I do want to draw attention, also, to our very high scores for the quality of our services, facilities and resources. Out-of-classroom support of our students is increasingly essential, because fostering their quality-of-life also contributes to their academic success.”
