Private career colleges are playing an increasingly important role in the postsecondary education both in Kentucky and the nation. Their mission-critical approach is to educate toward employability. Their outcome-driven agenda begins with the end in mind for their students: taking the knowledge, skills, and abilities embodied in each student and raising those attributes to a level that matches what employers require of their new hires. The objective of this report is to identify the benefits career colleges represent to Kentucky.
On February 1, students of Kentucky’s career colleges and schools took a break from the classroom to put the practical skills they’re learning on display for state lawmakers. The Kentucky Association of Career Colleges and Schools (KACCS) organized a “Career College Day” at the state Capitol to demonstrate the many valuable skills and trades students learn in their programs. Students and program directors from seven career colleges made the trip to Frankfort for the event and the opportunity to reach out to Kentucky’s legislators.
Career College Day provides an excellent learning experience for both students and legislators. Students in attendance at the event were able to practice and demonstrate skills learned in the classroom while sharing their educational experiences. The event also encourages students to learn about and become involved with the legislative process. Legislators and staff also benefit from the opportunity by gaining a greater understanding about the wide range of degrees and certificates offered by career colleges and schools.
Students from Sullivan University’s culinary arts program prepared an impressive display of hors d’oeuvres and desserts for the event. The university’s pharmacy program and graduate degree programs were also represented and provided information about their programs and the opportunities they have gained through their educational experience.
Several students in attendance offered various medical screenings for legislators and legislative staff. National College’s Medical Assisting students provided glucose screenings, cholesterol screenings, and blood pressure checks and Spencerian College brought students working toward their Medical Laboratory Technician, Nursing, and Medical Assisting degrees who provided pulmonary function testing, body mass index (BMI), blood typing and blood pressure checks.
Computer Graphic Design students from Spencerian College were also in attendance at the event. In addition to an impressive showcase of graphic art from students in the program, those in attendance were also able to demonstrate computer design techniques.
Sullivan College of Technology and Design students representing both the Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning Repair (HVAC-R) program and the Mechanical Engineering Technology program displayed and shared information about their programs and skills attained by hands on learning provided in their classrooms.
ATA College was represented by their Dental Assisting students who handed out toothbrushes and dental floss and provided information on oral hygiene.
Daymar College Medical Massage Therapy students provided a moment of relaxation for legislators by offering chair massages to Career College Day attendees. Lincoln College of Technology Massage Therapy students taught attendees how to make salt scrubs and provided information on how they can be used therapeutically for relaxation at home.
The event was a great success with legislators, students and special guests all benefiting from the experience.
