Key Performance Indicators for Private Career Colleges

Graduation Rate, Employment Rates and Student Loan Default Rates

Measuring Success after Graduation
How many students successfully graduate from private career colleges? Do graduates find jobs and are these jobs related to their training? How many students pay back their student loans?

Since 2013, Ontario’s private career colleges – or PCCs – have worked with the ministry and its partners to gather data to answer these questions. The data is used to develop measurable values called key performance indicators – or KPIs.
