Fleming College leads the province in apprenticeship student satisfaction



Peterborough ON – (Sept. 6, 2017) – Fleming College has received top marks for its apprenticeship in-school training in an inaugural student satisfaction survey.

For the first time ever in Ontario, a Key Performance Indicator (KPI) Student Satisfaction survey was made available to apprentices, allowing them to provide feedback on their in-school learning experience as well as allow colleges to measure the success of program delivery and identify areas to improve.

Fleming College had the second highest overall student satisfaction rate in the province with 84.5 per cent of apprenticeship students either very satisfied or satisfied with their overall experience at Fleming. As well:

  • 93.8 per cent of apprenticeship students at Fleming felt the program was giving them the knowledge and skills needed for their career, the highest satisfaction rate in the province.
  • Fleming scored 88.5 per cent satisfaction on the overall quality of the learning experiences.
  • 86.5 per cent of apprenticeship students were very satisfied/satisfied with the overall quality of the facilities and resources at Fleming, well above the 74 per cent provincial average and the second highest rate in Ontario.

“We are extremely pleased to see Fleming as a provincial leader in student satisfaction among apprenticeship students,” said Maxine Mann, Dean of Fleming College’s School of Trades and Technology. “It is a testament to our expert faculty as well as the amazing learning environment – the Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre – which provides students with a state-of-the-art educational experience.”

“The KPI Student Satisfaction Survey is an important guiding tool for us as an institution,” said Tony Tilly, President of Fleming College. “Providing the opportunity for apprentices to share their experience and comments through the survey will help us further improve overall program performance and success, and point to potential areas for improvement.”
