Community Colleges Expect Growth In Enrollment

Enrollment at community colleges around the province is continuing to rise to record levels.......a rise of over 7 per cent last year with a ten per cent increase in applications to attend.

Community College President and C-E-O Marilyn Luscombe tells CHSJ News there's a good reason for that when 70 per cent of the jobs in the future will require some form of post secondary education.

She also points out attending community college is far less taxing on the pocketbook than going to university.

Luscombe adds community college is moving beyond what many people had considered to be the second tier of post secondary education with a concerted effort at rebranding its image.
