Cerritos College is one of the 27 community colleges in the Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Its physical location in the geographical center of the area and its easy access from several major freeways create both a competitive advantage and a requirement for program excellence. The college ensures that its Career Technical Education programs are both academically sound and industry focused to serve the community’s needs. Most of those programs produce the “High-Paying Non-Desk Jobs” that careerbuilder.com has talked about. Big data and analytics are therefore used to ensure that each program goes through a thorough biennial review that is created by utilizing EMSI Analyst. This data is then commented upon by faculty members to create a report that is eventually peer reviewed. Validation by industry advisory committees provide further corroboration about the direction needed for each of the programs to produce the talent needed on the job market. In this session you will hear about the total value chain that is currently used on our campus. It starts by highlighting our efforts to create pathways with local high schools (we were a recent recipient of a 2.9 Million grant in the industry sectors of Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Technology) and how to use Analyst in grant applications. It continues by creating custom brochures for each career track and creating reporting capabilities for the assessment of progress towards award goals. It finishes by closing the loop on tracking graduate’s salaries in each track to ensure relevance in the market place.

California Education Code for CTE programs – Section 78016 1. The program meets a documented labor demand 2. The program does not represent unnecessary duplication in the area 3. The program has demonstrated effectiveness as measured by employment and completion success of its students

Objectives of the program? Are they being achieved? How satisfied are students with their preparation for employment? Does this program contribute to programs in other fields? What plans are in place for improving the program? Partial example from Dental Hygiene: The objectives are reflective of the mandated Commission on Dental Accreditation educational (CODA) standards . encourage the student to develop professional behavior that is founded in evidence-base decision-making . Cerritos College dental hygiene students have achieved a 100% passage rate on both the written National Board and the clinical State Board examinations. CODA mandated student surveys distributed at the end of the first year, second year and one year post graduation, as well as employer surveys the above program objectives are being successfully met.

How strong is the demand? How has demand changed in the past two years and what is the outlook for the next five years. How many jobs are available regionally in this field? How is the job market impacting your program? Partial example from Machine Tool Technology: At the regional level, there were 742 completions for 1614 job openings which indicate that the job outlook for all areas of Machine Tool Technology is strong. The median hourly earnings in the field are 16.92 per hour and there are 30659 jobs in the region. A machinist making 28.85 per hour (90th percentile within 50 miles of ZIP code 90650 – EMSI data) will likely earn 90,000 per year with their overtime, more than almost any college graduate with a 4 year degree.

What are the trends in student enrollment, success, completion, and placement? Is there an increase or decline? What are the barriers to success and completion? What are placement rates? What do these data mean for your program? Partial example from Commercial Music: The program has experienced a significant increase in the past three years. A large part of the growth is due to the access students have to industry-standard equipment and training from a certified instructor. Now that the program offers professional certificates from Avid and Apple, interest in the program has increased. It is expected that the new Certificate, along with the professional certifications, will increase employer interest in the students and the program.
