17 schools join IAPCC
CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA / ACCESSWIRE / March 27, 2019 / The International Association of Private Career Colleges welcomes the membership of 17 new schools from seven countries.
Career colleges offer students an opportunity to gain employment in a diverse range of fields, with a focus on skills-based programs addressing shortages in industries worldwide.
''Changing economic markets and the fast pace of technological change mean employers today are looking for skilled candidates,'' said Mr. Vincent Bayer. ''Our colleges design their courses and curriculum on the advice of industry to meet workplace demands and needs."
Many students at career colleges access their course via distance learning in a flexible or accelerated format; offering working adults the opportunity to advance their skills.
"The addition of 17 new members highlights the strength of our industry, where students are seeking skills-based courses to improve their opportunities,'' said Mr. Vincent Bayer.
Students from career colleges can expect to earn more than a high school graduate. Developing the field of education through research is crucial to the growth of the career college sector.
