The Graduate Satisfaction & Employment Survey is one of the tools used in Red River College’s quest to provide applied education that gets people into the workforce. The college contributes to Manitoba’s economy by graduating people who are ready to step into a career. Graduates of RRC’s programs have experienced many aspects of their chosen career from hands-on training, as well as the on-the-job work experience options available in many programs.
There is considerable value in the effort that respondents put into a survey. People completing this survey are using their own time to give us their opinion, to help us understand what is working well and what isn’t. They are letting us know how their time at Red River College has affected their lives. Whether or not it was a perfect experience, a graduate can let us know through this survey. We show everyone what the graduates said in the annual Graduate Satisfaction & Employment Report.
Who uses the survey information?
Prospective students, high school and college counselors, academic advisors, faculty, employment agencies, and many others involved in career planning use the Graduate Satisfaction & Employment Report. This is the public view of the survey data that helps people learn about our programs and see how they connect to the labour market.
The report includes tables and charts at a college-wide, school, and program level providing employment, satisfaction, and salary information. The Occupation chapter provides a listing of graduates’ job titles and related programs that is an easy-to-use tool for determining which program will lead a person to their desired career.
The data collected from this survey is also used in various formats by the College to improve programs and satisfy the Council on Post-Secondary Education (COPSE) reporting requirements.
