2004 and 2005 BC Student Outcomes: Job Destinations of Former College and Institute Students
Ministry of Advanced Education
The BC College and Institute Student Outcomes Survey Project (CISO) collects and disseminates information about former students' post-secondary experiences and their subsequent labour market and further education experiences. The survey is administered annually to a number of former students of public colleges, university colleges, and institutes in British Columbia. The findings are used to help students make educational choices, to evaluate the success of the college and institute system in achieving its mandate, and to provide a solid basis for educational planning. This report, based on the BC College and Institute Student Outcomes Survey conducted in the spring of 2005 and 2004, provides a detailed description of the kinds of jobs obtained by former students. Following an overview, the data are presented in two sections. The first section, organized by field of study, answers the question: What occupations were students who exited from a particular field of study employed in? The second section, organized by occupations, answers the question: What field of study did students who found employment in a certain occupation come from? Five appendixes are included: (1) Glossary of Terms; (2) Response Rate by Institution; (3) Grouping of Programs into CIP [Classification of Instructional Programs] Codes Presented by Program Area and Program Type; (4) CIP Codes Roll-Up to Program Area Presented by Program Area; and (5) National Occupational Classification Matrix. [This report was co-published by the Outcomes Working Group, an initiative of the Ministry of Advanced Education.]
