Considerations and Questions

As students transition from high school to further education there are many different post-secondary options. Some of these options are:

  • Apprenticeship - a person who works for another in order to learn a trade while completing specified courses in that trade.

  • Vocational/Technical Trade School - institution designed to provide vocational education, or technical skills required to perform the tasks of a particular and specific job.

  • Community College - are two-year schools that provide affordable post-secondary education as a pathway to a four-year degree, certifications or employment.

  • College – a school you attend after high school; a school that offers courses leading to a degree in particular fields or areas of study. Typically is considered a four year university.

  • Internships - the position of a student or trainee who works in an organization, sometimes without pay, in order to gain work experience or satisfy requirements for a qualification.

  • On the Job Training for Employment - is a form of training taking place in a normal working situation. On-the-job training, sometimes called direct instruction, is one of the earliest forms of training.
