When you are 16 years old, you are suddenly faced with a bewildering of choices. Whether you want to go on to college or get a high school diploma. You may also like the idea of dropping out of school full-time to find a job and earn a living.
By the age of 18, you may have the opportunity to apply to university or start a job search. All the options available to you have advantages and disadvantages. A course allows you to get to know the world of work and continue your education while earning an income at the same time.
The prospect of staying in school or college is daunting for some students, especially if they are not inclined towards academic staff. Also, if you've spent several years in education, finding a job can be difficult as employers may need someone with experience. Courses give you the opportunity to learn these skills during your studies to gain the appropriate qualification for your chosen subject.
Courses give you the opportunity to earn your own money while gaining access to other employee benefits such as a retirement plan, recreation area and a subsidized canteen. Although you can start with basic education, as you develop additional skills your income will increase.
Instead of spending your days in the classroom, courses offer you hands-on experience combined with some research. You will receive mentoring and coaching from other experienced staff who have years of teaching experience for you.
