Canadian Postsecondary Performance: IMPACT 2015

A new report published by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) has found that the amount of money postsecondary systems have matters less than how they spend it. HEQCO’s Canadian Postsecondary Performance: Impact 2015 report used 34 indicators to measure provincial postsecondary system outcomes across 3 dimensions: access, value to students, and value to society. Outcomes were then considered in relation to operating cost-per-student to produce an overall performance score. The report found that provinces vary in their strengths, but that in every province there is a positive link between PSE and labour market success, individual earnings, citizen engagement, and economic contributions.

Career Decision-making Patterns of Canadian Youth and Associated Postsecondary Educational Outcomes: Fact Sheet

This paper examines the career expectations of Canadian youth over time, using a longitudinal database, to assess when youth begin to demonstrate consistency in their career choices. In this research, youth are said to demonstrate consistency in their career choices when their response to the question “What kind of job or occupation would you be interested in having when you are about 30 years old?” matches with their answers from earlier cycles of the survey in terms of occupation type and required level of education.

Career ready: Towards a national strategy for the mobilization of Canadian potential

In order to best serve students and the Canadian economy, university enrolment should be cut by 30% and more focus should be directed towards colleges and polytechnics, writes Ken Coates in a report commissioned by the Canadian Council for Chief Executives (CCCE). Career ready: Towards a national strategy for the mobilization of Canadian potential looks at the imbalances in Canada’s education system, determining that the status quo is not benefitting Canadians. Coates says short-term thinking by schools and policy-makers combined with a bias against “blue-collar” work is to blame for the current situation.

Ch’nook Initiative

Founded by the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia in 2002, the Ch’nook Initiative (originally Chinook) has focused on increasing Aboriginal participation in post-secondary business education studies in the province of British Columbia and Canada. Recognizing that new ways of engagement would be required, Ch’nook led the development of collaborative mechanisms and priorities by which successful partnerships with Aboriginal organizations, First Nations communities, post-secondary institutions and Canadian corporations were established to support increased Aboriginal participation in business education studies.

College after University: Understanding a growing market segment

A new study out of Algonquin College is showing that the reason more university graduates are attending colleges is because they are seeking skills and practical experience. The number of university graduates attending Ontario colleges has increased 40% in recent years; according to Colleges Ontario, 12% of college entrants in 2012–13 had university credentials. While 44% of college students are concerned about their job prospects, this figure jumps to 63% for university grads attending college. 32% of university grads expressed an interest in business fields, looking to connect their discipline-specific knowledge with workplace opportunities. The results are based on a survey of 1,200 current or prospective Algonquin students.
