Trade School vs. College People are told from a young age that the only way to lead a successful life is to go to college. Although there is no denying of the economic advantage post secondary learning can provide for a student, college isn’t necessarily the only available option. Options like
I have an interest of being at a school where I want to be a vet tech. I would like to learn more about animals than I am now at the career center being in a animal care class. That would make my application complete trying to get into a school with vet tech classes. I would like to learn how to take care of sick animals and how the vet tech does x rays and all kinds of experience that I would like to see because i’m not getting that kind of experience at the medina county career center. Or to be a vet tech assistant because I love working with animals and it’s a type of career field I would really enjoy. I think really looking into the kind of hands on training with learning more about the animals I will really get a kick out of because that
http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/post911_gibill.asp Vocational School Options The Post-9/11 Bill offers much more than an academic, classroom-based education. It also provides opportunities for hands-on veterans and service members who want skill-based training. This is important because veterans and service members are allowed to attend technical schools for short-term degrees that will help them find gainful employment. For starters, the Post-9/11 Bill applies to the technology fields of network, computer and audio/visual (AV) repair. Those who are mechanically inclined may study truck driving and diesel and aviation mechanics. Construction related job programs include electrician, HVAC repair and high-pressure welder. Even gun smithing, tool making, barber school and emergency medical technician (EMT) training are included.
What are your thoughts regarding your ability to work with Veterans dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Substance Use Disorders (SUDS), and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)? This week’s class content emphasized the importance of having well trained clinicians working with Veterans. Although PTSD, TBI, and SUD are not isolated to just
People can attend trade schools or community colleges to obtain the knowledge needed in a short period of time to join the workforce sooner. While the salary for these occupations do not pay as well as a doctor , lawyer or teacher, they can still help you to be more successful. This option also isn’t as costly as obtaining four or two-year degrees . “Professor Lerman, the American University economist, said some high school graduates would be better served by being taught how to behave and communicate in the workplace”(Steinberg, 2010). Switching from a school environment to a workplace can be an issue for many graduates. Due to college and graduate schools being pushed to the forefront of focus there is a lack of preparation provided to the students who choose to go straight into the workforce after graduating high school. In some cases this results in poor work ethic, the ability to work well with others,professionalism and handling issues in a work environment. “Yet despite the need, vocational school programs, which might teach such skills, have been one casualty in the push for national education
When considering the education levels of veterans, the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs reports that female veterans are more likely to have a college education than males. The study shows that around 43.3% of female veterans have had some college experience while only 36.5% male veterans have had been exposed to a college education. When compared, female veterans are also more likely to have a bachelor’s degree and an advanced degree than men veterans (bachelor’s: 20.8% female to 15.9% male; advanced degree: 13.8% female to 10.7% male).
The work environment in Vet Tech is stressful. In a Vet clinic, illnesses and injuries are more common in Vet Tech. One has to be able to handle being kicked, bitten, scratched, etc when holding, cleaning, or restraining an animal. Try to avoid getting injuries while working in a Vet.
Along with the countless number of significant jobs vet techs and assistants occupy on day to day basis, they must cope with the various encounters of hectic and
He challenges widespread expectation of all middle-class Americans: “‘vocational training’ is second class. ‘College’ is first class” (Murray 632). This passage, while appearing to offer a simple definition to the reader in order for him or her to be informed of the subject matter argued herein, already states his position in the matter.
Dual enrollment, four year universities, community colleges and trade schools. I’ve seen people with college educations that have terrible jobs and no real prospects, and I’ve seen people without degrees, or with technical certificates, that are wildly successful and happy with the choice they made. Yet we continue to see the disparities between those that have vocational training or a two or four year degree, and those that do not.

There is a large group of students who by high school know what career they want outside of high school. These students deserve to have the opportunity to start learning skills needed for that career by bringing more vocational schools to states like Nevada where the graduation rate is so low. “The latest figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) show that about 68% of high school students attend college. That means over 30% graduate with neither academic nor job skills” (Wyman, "Why We Desperately Need To Bring Back
Connor Breight Political Sci 1 Tues/Thurs 12:30pm 19 October, 2014 Public Policy: California’s workforce skills gap Problem: The problem I chose to write on is the potential workforce skills gap within California’s population but more specifically within the population of college graduates and how they will effect California 's work force now and in the future. In the Public Policy Institute of California’s 2025 report a potential mismatch was shown between the level of education the future population is likely to poses, and the level of education that will be demanded by the future economy. This reveals that California is facing a serious issue with it’s supply of college educated workers. Projections of the states economy shows a steady increase of demand for an educated workforce but California is unlikely to meet this demand unless the decision makers implement policies that greatly effect changes in college attendance and graduation rates among the states college youth. “If current trends persist, California will have one million fewer college graduates than it needs in 2025—only 35 percent of working-age adults will have a college degree in an economy that would otherwise require 41 percent of workers to have a college degree” (Johnson, Hans, Ria Sengupta). Three approaches appealed to decision makers for improving this outlook and lessening the gap is by increasing California 's college attendance rates, increasing transfer rates from community colleges to
I have always been interested in animals, when I was younger I would save baby animals or sick animals from the sides of the road and care for them until they were able to do so themselves. Ever since I can remember my future career was seen as achieving in being a veterinarian and have my own clinic. In this clinic I do not plan on working on ordinary animals, my goal is to become a big animal and exotics vet.
Have you ever wondered why so many families have pets? There’s no bond quite like a pet and its family. Pets love unconditionally, they know your feelings, and when you own a pet, they’re always there for you. They make you feel better when you’re down, they bring joy to
