BC gets A+ for education system from students

September 18, 2013

BC’s PSE institutions have received an A+ from students who are satisfied with their education and training. The BC Student Outcomes Project surveys former students on their satisfaction with the education system, and their employment and student loan/debt information. In 2012, 4 surveys gathered information from over 30,000 former students, with 93% reporting satisfaction with the education experience. Of the baccalaureate graduates surveyed, 87% were in the labour force; 90% of the diploma, associate degree and certificate graduates were employed; and 96% of former apprenticeship students surveyed were in the labour force. The survey data is used to monitor the effectiveness of education and training programs and to align training with labour-market demands. BC News Release
