Tech education leader Lighthouse Labs has released the results from its 2022 Student Outcomes Report.
The Lighthouse Labs Career Services team supported over 570 graduates looking for jobs from January 2022 to March 2023.
The report highlights employment outcomes from its Web Development, Data Science, and Cyber Security bootcamps, including graduation rates, employment status and average starting salaries of alumni.
“As digital transformation continues to accelerate rapidly across every industry, the findings from our Student Outcomes Report demonstrate that regardless of external economic disruptions, there will always be opportunities for skilled tech professionals,” said Jeremy Shaki, CEO of Lighthouse Labs.
“At Lighthouse Labs, we’ll continue to look for innovative ways to support the next generation of tech talent and provide high-quality tech education that’s accessible to all. We’ve recently rolled out our Flex Initiative across all programs so that students can tailor their learning experience to fit their personal circumstances. We look forward to helping transform the lives and careers of many more students in the future.”
Despite economic and seasonal downturns in 2022, Canada is still facing a digital skills talent shortage. Lighthouse Labs students continue to achieve a high rate of success post-graduation, with 85% of 2022 graduates securing relevant tech roles, and 82% doing so in the first 180 days after graduation. The total average starting salary for 2022 alumni was $58,549.
These findings highlight the fact that roles in Data Science, Web Development, and Cyber Security are still in high demand, and there is an ongoing need for skilled workers.
