Why Choose Trillium College

The notion that education is something one completes before entering the labour market has become outdated. Rapid technological change, a lack of new qualified workers and other factors mean more and more adults are returning to school to update their knowledge and skills to acquire new ones.

Most adult workers who earned a post secondary certificate or career training from a technical institute or career school, saw their earnings jump. For example, all groups of men who obtained a postsecondary certificate posted higher growth in their hourly earnings than those who did not participate in adult education.

Women aged 17 to 34 enjoyed high returns in both hourly and annual earnings – 11% and 15%, respectively – on obtaining a postsecondary certificate. Less educated women who obtained a postsecondary certificate also netted significant returns in hourly, but not annual, earnings.
