Graduate Employment Indicators

Key Performance Indictor (KPI) surveys are mandated by the Ontario government and have been used since 1998. The surveys are used to measure how the college is meeting the needs of students, graduates and employers. The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities in collaboration with the Ontario Colleges have identified five measurements to be used as the Key Performance Indicators:

  • Graduate Employment
  • Graduate Satisfaction
  • Employer Satisfaction
  • Student Satisfaction
  • Graduation Rate

The results of the survey further helps Centennial College and our commitment to providing our students with high quality, innovative and responsive education in a supportive and safe environment. The success of our students both in the classroom and in their future careers is important to us. The Graduate Employment and Graduate Satisfaction KPI data are collected through the Graduate Satisfaction Survey.  This telephone survey is conducted six months after graduation by an external survey consultant called Forum Research. 

The survey collects information on the graduates' employment experience and their satisfaction with their college education. View or download the Graduate Satisfaction Survey.
