  • Why do your students drop out?70% drop out because of a lack of engagement/interest (US DOE Data)
  • Job boards represent a small portion of all available jobs in the market, but they can represent up to 15%. Look to these job boards for trends in in-demand skills. Look to the media, department of workforce services, economic development, etc., for other job trends and deficits.
  • Hiring managers know certified professionals help their organizations. In a recent study by leading employment agency Robert Half International, over 45,000 job applicants were studied. 2,600 of these individuals obtained the Microsoft Office certification. The results were staggering:* 12% earned more than their non-certified counterparts.  * The study also showed that placement is higher with certification, with 47% of individuals reporting that their certification was a factor in improving their ability to find or keep a job, or get a promotion.  A significantly higher percentage of the certified individuals got jobs in the first placeThe part-time individuals that were certified were converted to full time positions their companies, 20% more often than their non certified counterparts This study showed the value of a certification to employers. Increased pay and created better job opportunities.
  • The UK National Health Service is Europe's largest company and the 4th largest in the world. In 2010 the NHS launched a Microsoft Office Skills Training (MOST) program to increase NHS employee productivity when using Microsoft Office applications - Word, Excel PowerPoint, Outlook and Access. The program is proving popular with NHS staff, and since the program was launched there have been over 2000 exam completions. NHS offers the MOS certification to employees for free. David Levison, Senior Project Manager with the DH Informatics Team responsible for the delivery of the MOST program within the NHS, believes this skills training program will allow all NHS staff to get the “MOST‟ out of the software they use on a daily basis. A recent survey of over 100 learners from 40 different NHS organizations undertaken in September 2010 found that 100% would recommend the courses to colleagues and that 97% were now undertaking every day Microsoft Office tasks faster.
