Upcoming CCTA Webinars

What Can We Know About Our Graduates As They Enter the Workforce?

January 19 (3 p.m. EDT)

This webinar starts with the premise that we, at community colleges, seem to know almost nothing about our graduates as they leave us. At least that is the case at our college district. And yet we are being increasingly pressed to know how our students fare. I have heard program heads say “all of our students get employed.” But with very few exceptions we have no direct knowledge. o We will discuss approaches that include creating an agreement with your state’s department of economic security to get wage data (not particularly easy), sending out a survey by email to graduates (anticipate a low response rate) and setting up a call center. In the latter we saw a 56% response rate and got some valuable information. See how this might work for you and at what cost.
