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

Today it is critical to know more about our community college graduates as they leave us. We are driven to demonstrate the effectiveness of our programs and the achievement of gainful employment for our graduates. Direct knowledge is difficult to come by. This webinar will address the question, “What can we know?” and illustrate approaches, attempts and best practices to actually obtain information about our students as they enter and participate in the workforce. The webinar features best practices from the statewide survey to assess employment outcomes for students who have participated in career and technical education coursework at California community colleges. In addition we will discuss approaches tried and implemented at the Maricopa Community Colleges in Arizona.
