Currently, many people still have misconceptions about vocational schools, negative or positive. Maybe those myths have been true in the past. But at the present time, those thoughts are no longer true. With this article, we will solve the “misunderstanding” about vocational schools with you!
If you fail college, you must go to vocational school
Many people still have this thought, especially in each graduation exam this becomes hotter than ever. This might be the right mindset if you’re living in the 70’s and 80’s – when college admission was still a big deal or school wasn’t really developed.
With the present time, and also in the future when universities appear more and more, the university admission rate is extremely high. If you don’t pass this school and still have another school, the university gate is not too far away for students. You choose a vocational school not necessarily because you failed college, there are many reasons for young people to choose it.
Benefits of vocational schools
First thing, these friends are probably living their passion. No university will teach you about beauty, spa, cosmetology. Or for you to really experience the industry of your choice. Instead of studying theory in the university lecture hall, these young people choose to “struggle” with the profession they love. But still ensure professional knowledge, high technical skills. Besides, college is no longer the only path to success. Many famous billionaires do not come from college, but they still achieve achievements, bringing a lot of success to themselves. Therefore, if someone chooses a vocational school instead of a university, don’t be quick to look down on them, because maybe they will do great things in the future.
Studying from a vocational school to become a worker
Today, when you graduate from a vocational school, no one will call you a worker anymore, but a technician instead. Studying in a vocational school does not mean that you will do manual labor, you can still do mental work. Normally, when (large) enterprises need personnel, they will often work directly with training centers. At the same time, they also submitted a request to the center to select candidates. Because when you graduate from a vocational school, you already have your own practical experience, get to work faster without spending too much time on training.
Society has given more respect to technical labor. They are the key people, the core at every business. They are just as important as any part of the company, each part is a link that when any link fails, the whole system cannot function.
