Results released reinforce the strength of college education as an effective route into the workforce.

Provincial Key Performance Indicator (KPI) results released reinforce the strength of college education as an effective route into the workforce. For Loyalist, 89.3 per cent of the College’s most recent graduates found employment within six months of graduation compared to the provincial average of 84 per cent.

“We are very pleased with this outstanding result, particularly in a period of a challenging job market,” said Loyalist President Maureen Piercy. “The College has a strong tradition in graduate employment – Loyalist grads have always achieved high placement rates relative to the college system, and this year our results are right at the top of the province. Our focus is on helping students succeed in their careers, a focus which is highlighted in our ‘We put you to work’ branding position.”

Other KPI results for Loyalist show strong satisfaction rates at levels greater than 80 per cent for Graduate Satisfaction (83.8), Employer Satisfaction (83.9), and Student Satisfaction (80.5).

“We review the annual KPI results as part of our continuous improvement process,” said President Piercy. “While there are always opportunities for improvement, the results this year really speak to the excellence of College programming, teaching and the Loyalist experience for students. I am very proud of the efforts of faculty and staff right across the College in working to support our students’ success.”

The provincial government and the colleges have been gathering the annual data on college results since 1998. The most recent KPIs were gathered by two independent research firms, from March 2014 to February 2015.
