Research Results from the Student Transitions Project
Ministry of Advanced Education and Labour Market Development
This report highlights student transition trends across a four-year period, with K-12 data from 2001/02 - 2004/05 and post-secondary data from 2002/03-2005/06. Reported findings include: (1) There is a consistent trend in immediate entry transition rates, with slightly more than half of all high school graduates making an immediate transition into British Columbia's public post-secondary system with one year of graduation; (2) Within 4 years of graduation, slightly more than 70 percent of all British Columbia high school graduates had enrolled in public post-secondary education; and (3) The number of British Columbia secondary school graduates increased during the four-year period. Findings for Aboriginal Students include: (1) About 42.2 percent of Aboriginal high school graduates made an immediate transition into British Columbia's public post-secondary system; (2) Although Aboriginal high school graduates were less likely to make an immediate transition into the public post-secondary system compared to non-Aboriginal graduates, a greater proportion of Aboriginal graduates enrolled in post-secondary education in subsequent entry years; and (3) Within four years of graduation, 67.7 percent of British Columbia Aboriginal high school graduates had enrolled in public post-secondary education. (Contains 4 figures.) [The report was published in partnership with the Ministry of Education.]
