It can be quite challenging to get young folk to realise they don’t necessariy need the time and epense of going off to university these days. For a good few y ears this was all senior schools of all sorts and types would concentrate their energies on. It’s like a sausage factory of pushing children to the umpteenth level to go off and get degrees. The student could just as easily buy into a truly superb vocation or career focused e-learning course and possibly go on to take serious exams that will matter later on. Most of the time they are not very good results and very few of them actually get a really enhanced pay packet as a result. This was proven a few weeks ago when a company I know were recruiting for trainee account manager in the business marketing world. She had the right degree on paperwork but had no evidence of work based experience and couldn’t do the simplest practical ‘in tray’ initiative test that all candidates were set. With online training courses that also offer practical experience concentrate on the subject points and encourages the application of common sense and aptitude, students and work candidates stand a much better chance of getting on in the big serious world of work.
