Four out of five of Ontario’s 2012-13 college graduates were employed six months after graduation and just as many were satisfied or very satisfied with the overall quality of their learning experiences. Meanwhile, more than 92 per cent of their employers were satisfied or very satisfied with their new hires. That’s according to the 2013-14 Key Performance Indicators data released Tuesday by Colleges Ontario and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities after their annual surveying exercise. One survey was administered to all graduates six months after graduation and another to their employers. Both had response rates of more than 60 per cent. Although it may appear from the charts below that some colleges are doing better than others, Colleges Ontario cautions against comparisons between schools or to previous years’ results because the college sizes, local employment conditions, program mixes and graduate demographics vary, and the graduate survey questions were revised this year.
