WHAT IS CAREER EDUCATION?



Career schools are postsecondary, occupationally oriented education institutions. These schools offer entry-level skills training focused on specific careers.


Courses stress training in specialized job requirements and vary in length from one day to eighteen months. Students spend a varying number of hours in class depending on the course taken.


Most students want specific training to improve their employment opportunities. Most look for quick job market entry. This is a strength of career school programs.


Many career school students have even attended two and four year colleges but later seek more marketable career skills at a career school.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES ABOUND WITH HIGH SKILL EDUCATION

In a changing workplace where three out of four jobs now require a specific skill, postsecondary high skill education is giving students the hands-on experience they need to be more marketable in today’s job market.

EDUCATION AFTER HIGH SCHOOL IS ESSENTIAL TO SUCCESS

 

 

“With no post secondary education or training, people often end up with unskilled jobs – generally doing dull, dead-end or dangerous work.”
