Career College News
America's impending job market will affect today's students. By 2014, two of the fastest-growing industries will be health and education and the information sector. Good news – students can find training for these jobs at career colleges. Already anticipating the increase in these areas, many career colleges have added the necessary programs.
Have you ever wondered how the general public felt about career colleges? Do most know what the term "career college" means? How do parents of high school students feel about their kids enrolling at a career college? These are just a few of the questions that the Career College Association (CCA) wanted answered when they commissioned a recent study from the prominent research firm, Peter D. Hart Research Associates. The study was to examine various aspects of the public's attitudes on career colleges, including the perceptions and judgments about the role of career colleges – who career colleges serve, what their mission is, and how well they fulfill their mission.
With the career education sector once again about to take center stage, the Imagine America Foundation has released its annual Fact Book, which presents some compelling research that provides a picture of the nation's career colleges and how the labor force is impacted by its graduates.
