November 28, 2013

Okanagan College has seen a 21% increase in enrolment in trades and apprenticeship programs this fall, while its overall enrolment rate remains steady. 660 students are taking these types of courses, compared to 547 at the same time in 2012. Also, student numbers in arts programs dropped by about 11%. “It’s important to understand that the fall enrolment snapshot is just that, it doesn’t tell the whole story,” explained Okanagan VP Education Andrew Hay. “The fall numbers are one of several indicators we use to calculate and predict our enrolment for the year.” Okanagan News Release
