Personal Career Training

The Willis College Career Services team provides career training that is unique among career colleges in Ottawa and Arnprior. They assist students and graduates in finding COOP placements and secure jobs in their field of study by working with employers to match the right person with the right position. Willis College has an impeccable reputation with local employers and is a shining example of personal career training by a private college.

Through these connections, we can accurately adapt our career college programs to labour market trends, and most importantly, we can connect our students and grads to their dream career. We are one of the only private colleges in Ottawa and Arnprior to offer this kind of one-on-one career training.

Key performance indicators for Private Career Colleges:

KPIs show how graduates have fared after graduating from PCC vocational programs. They help future students make more informed decisions about their postsecondary education and help institutions identify areas of strength and weakness and opportunities for improvement.

This report provides key performance indicator (KPI) results for 2013 private career college (PCC) students who graduated or who were scheduled to graduate in 2013 from a registered PCC approved to receive students assisted by the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP).

Published 2013 KPIs include OSAP default rate, graduation rate, graduate employment rate, and graduate employment rate in the field of study.

Results are provided as averages for the PCC sector as well as by program type, program category, and individual programs at each school. The report does not provide data for all institutions, but only for those approved for OSAP as of January 1, 2013.

The report is a summary of results from the ministry’s pilot year for calculating and publishing PCC KPIs and does not represent the entire sector. PCC to PCC comparisons (rankings) could produce misleading results because of PCC size, local employment conditions, program mix, and graduate demographics. The data from each PCC should be considered on its own.

The ministry is using lessons learned from this first KPI collection cycle to strengthen the KPI reporting methodology. KPI data will help the Superintendent of Private Career Colleges and the sector establish measurable benchmarks for vocational programs provided in the PCC sector.
