Letter from the DirectorDear Education Stakeholders,One of the critical functions of the Iowa Department of Education is to provide andinterpret educational data. We do this to support accountability, transparency, andthe ongoing improvement of our educational institutions. Staff in the Division ofCommunity Colleges and Workforce Preparation continue to refine and improve themethods in which we collect, analyze, and report data to ensure that it is both meaningfuland easily understood. We trust the reader will find that to be the case in this, the firstedition of Iowa’s Community Colleges: Noncredit Career and Technical Education(CTE) Employment Outcomes Report.The Department has published numerous education outcomes reports for credit-bearing CTE programs, butwe are breaking new ground nationally with this study of noncredit programs designed to improve Iowa’stalent pipeline to meet future employment demands. These programs often lead to state licensure, industrycertification, or further postsecondary training in related credit programs. In all such cases, they help Iowaachieve Governor Kim Reynolds’ Future Ready Iowa goal of having 70 percent of Iowans in the workforce withpostsecondary education or training by 2025.In this report, you will find information about noncredit CTE program enrollment, completion, continuationinto further education and training, employment, wages, and in- and out-of-state migration. It also providesa mapping from each of the 16 CTE career clusters to the industry of employment for those students enrolledin noncredit training programs in Academic Year (AY) 2015/2016.Thank you for taking the time to review this report and for your ongoing support of CTE in Iowa. I look forwardto working with you on statewide collaborative efforts to provide quality education and training programsdesigned to equip Iowans with the skills and knowledge to meet their career and educational goals. Onlythrough the success of our students will Iowa’s workforce be ready for future jobs and economic prosperity.Sincerely,Ryan M.

They provide a starting point for individuals toacquire skills needed for high-demand job opportunities as well as satisfy continuing education units (CEUs) required of certainoccupations. These programs also offer continuing education for individuals to stay current in their jobs, meet local employer needswith custom job training designed for workplace preparation, and provide a pathway to further postsecondary education.Student DemographicsAs compared to credit-bearing students, noncredit CTE students at Iowa communityTop 10 Noncredit Programscolleges tend to be male, older, and more racially diverse.53.5% of noncredit63.4% of noncredit25.7% of noncredit studentsstudents were malestudents were 25 years orwere of a racial or ethniccompared to 45.9% ofolder compared to 21.7%minority group compared tocredit students.of credit students.21.7% of credit students.Continue EducationNoncredit CTE programs often lead to enrollment in credit programs, support creditstudents on their educational journeys, and help degree holders build and enhancecurrent marketplace skills.21.5% of noncreditOf those who continue into10.5% of noncredit studentsstudents continue intocredit programs, 84.0%hold previously earnedcredit-bearing programs.did so at an Iowa college orpostsecondary care and transportation programscomprise the highest noncredit CTEenrollments at Iowa community colleges.2,634Nursing Assistant/Aide2,016Commercial Vehicle Operator644Medication Aide539EMT Paramedic438Office Technology435438Welding Technology324438Fire Science288438Engineering Technology253438Business Management186438OSHA Technology

IntroductionNONCREDIT CTE PROGRAMSIowa’s Community Colleges: Noncredit Career and Technical EducationNoncredit CTE programs offered(CTE) Employment Outcomes Report (first edition), is the first statewideby Iowa’s 15 community collegesattempt to analyze data and report on the outcomes of students enrolledare market-driven programsin community college noncredit programs and provide institutional datafor college administrators and policymakers as they engage in planningand program approval. According to the Community College ResearchCenter (CCRC):“Substantive information is needed on outcomes to assess fullythat are highly responsive toregional workforce needs. Theseprograms expedite the attainmentof marketplace skills, equippingindividuals to enter the labor marketand secure gainful employment.the contributions of noncredit workforce education to students,employers, and the community it is crucial to document the valueof noncredit workforce education for individuals and to determinewhich recorded outcomes have the most value for individuals indifferent occupations, industries, and labor markets,”[1] (pg. 4,CCRC, 2008).In this report, employment and wages are analyzed to illustrate theimportant impact that the noncredit education and training providedby Iowa’s community colleges has on the state’s economy. Followingstudents on the individual level is the preferred method of reportingeducation outcomes by program. Confidentiality laws, however, restrictDATA ANALYSISthe ability to link individual student records to employment and wagesNoncredit CTE programs wereanalyzed separately, by Classificationof Instructional Program (CIP), inorder to assess the benefits of each.To ensure a uniform approach toresearch, only programs consistingof 32 or more contact hours wereanalyzed, which is comparable totwo credit hours and is the equivalentof the shortest credit certificateprogram in Iowa that has provenlabor market value.for most researchers. In addition, educational records and employmentrecords are held in two different state agencies, the Iowa Department ofEducation (Department) and the Iowa Workforce Development (IWD).The Department and IWD have overcome this hurdle by forming apartnership dedicated to evaluating and reporting education outcomes(i.e., continued education, employment, and wages) for communitycollege credit certificate, diploma, and associate degree awards, as wellas noncredit programs through strict data sharing agreements andconfidentiality agreements.[1] Van Noy, M., Jacobs, J., Korey, S., Bailey, T. & Hughes, K.

Future Ready Iowa“Future Ready Iowa” is Governor Kim Reynolds’ initiative designed tobuild Iowa’s talent pipeline for the careers of tomorrow. The initiativewas created after Iowa received a National Governors’ Association grantFUTURE READY IOWA GOALThe goal of Future Ready Iowa isfor 70 percent of Iowa’s workforceto have education or trainingbeyond high school by 2025in 2014 to develop strategies to improve the educational and trainingattainment of its citizens and to align degree and credential programswith employer demand.Education and training beyond high school has become the new minimumthreshold for Americans to earn a living wage and attain middle-classstatus.

Iowa’s economy reflects this national trend and has seen a steadyincrease in the demand for postsecondary education and training in theindustries that form the mainstay of the economy.To address the demand for a more skilled workforce, Future Ready Iowaset a goal for 70 percent of Iowa’s workforce to have education or trainingbeyond high school by 2025. In 2016, a Future Ready Alliance was formedto develop a strategic plan for meeting this goal. After meeting over thecourse of a year, the Alliance of business, education, and communityleaders, released its recommendations in 2017.In 2018, the Future Ready Iowa Act, which addresses the Alliance’srecommendations, was signed by Governor Reynolds via House File 2458.This act is designed to strengthen Iowa’s talent pipeline by establishing aregistered apprenticeship development program, a volunteer mentoringprogram, summer youth internships, summer postsecondary coursesfor high school students aligned with high-demand career pathways, anemployer innovation fund, and skilled workforce scholarship and grantprograms.A Collaborative ApproachFuture Ready Iowa is not an isolatedprogram, but rather a collaborativeapproach to highlighting bestpractices, nurturing high-qualitypartnerships, and ensuring taxpayerdollars are focused on those areasthat will maximize progress toward[2] Carnevale, A.P., Smith, N., Gulish, A., and Hanson, A.R.
