For those students who are looking to enter into either a vocational or technical school
A vocational school is a type of educational institution, which, hinge on the country, may refer to either secondary or post-secondary education designed to provide vocational education to its students,or technical skills required, to complete the tasks of a precise and specific job. Instead of students spending 4 years attending a college or university, a vocational school will allow you to complete your degree within a two-year period (or less)! Students also have the option of completing his or her studies online if that is preferred.
What is a Vocational School?
A vocational school is a career-focused school that prepares and trains all students graduating high school for particular occupations. Vocational schools – also named trade schools, technical schools, or career schools – offer a number of essential advantages to students.
My Readiness Coach stands by to assist all students that are interested in attending a vocational school with the most up to date information to help prepare, train, and complete the total process of financial aid.
Vocational schools offer the following for their students:
Faster Completion Times: Most vocational school programs take from a few months to two years to complete, which means you can enter the workforce quickly upon completion.
No General Education Courses: Your education will focus only on the skills necessary for your career, with few or no extras. SAT and ACT tests are not required to attend a vocational school.
Smaller Classes: With fewer students in each class, teachers can provide more hands-on learning opportunities and be more accessible to their students before and after class.
Lower Cost: The cost of attending a vocational school will vary depending on the program and location, but it will be thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars less than attending a traditional four-year college program.
Highly Specialized Training: Your vocational education will involve hands-on training specific to your field of study and will likely take place in a setting similar to your future employment opportunity. As a vocational school graduate, you will need very little on-the-job training once hired.
Financial Aid: Students that qualify for the full amount of financial aid can pay for a vocational school program with little to no student loan debt.
However, there is one potential drawback to attending a vocational school, it is that they can limit any other options you have. Because all of the programs are highly specialized from start to completion, once you begin you are totally committed to that path of study and there is little to no room for exploring alternatives or changing your mind.
