The college has seen an 8% increase in student enrollment this year which has brought the numbers for first-year students to 2075 and the total population at Lambton College to 3494. Lambton College is in first place provincially with a confirmation growth of 17.6% over last year.
“We are thrilled that students are making Lambton their college of choice,” said Judith Morris, President and CEO. “Our career-focused education and training programs are attracting these students, with particular credit being given to those not coming directly from secondary school and international students.”
Enrollment numbers were particularly strong in the Health Sciences, Community Services and Fire and Public Safety areas with the Practical Nursing, Pre-Service Firefighter, Early Childhood Education, Police Foundations, Bachelor of Science – Nursing, Social Service Worker, Personal Support Worker, Paramedic, Child and Youth Worker and Massage Therapy programs seeing the highest numbers.
In addition to those areas the Chemical Production and Power Engineering Technology, Millwright Mechanical Technician, Welding Techniques and Sports and Recreation Management programs were also in high demand and on target.
