Break The Mold: Why choose trade school?
‘Tis the season for graduations. Endings and beginnings seem to transcend especially around this time of the year. Whether you’re a recent high school graduate, attended a loved one’s graduation ceremony, or graduated many years ago; the theme circling your mind is probably: Where do I begin now?
University study simply isn’t for everyone. Besides, your level of intelligence doesn’t equate to whether or not you have a collegiate degree. It’s time to defy those years of institutionalized goals of graduating with a college degree and accumulating thousands of dollars in debt. It can all be rather disillusioning given that most college grads end up in entry level positions that don’t value up to everything you expected.
The New Age Spa Institute is a proud supporter of excellence in education. NASI supports the belief that learning in any regard is a high achievement and that each individual has the choice to follow a career path that suits their needs and interest.
Let’s first start off with a simple question: How is trade school different from college?
Trade school is a post-secondary educational institution designed to train students for a specific job in a skilled trade career. These technical skills acquired in trade school (also known as technical or vocational school) prepare students for actual work in their chosen field. This type of education is entirely concentrated meaning that every class topic is geared toward job placement in the career you desire. Don’t your waste time on general education that you don’t want or need to.
What are the benefits of going to a trade school?
If you go the trade school route, you can expect real-world experience and direct entry to a high-demand career. It allows you to start earning a real salary – sooner. Most trade schools also offer small class sizes, which is a feature of New Age Spa Institute programs. At NASI, our educators curate an experience of mentor-mentee relationship and are able to guide students with individual needs. A major highlight about going to a trade school is the low cost when compared to collegiate pursuits. According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, it usually costs more than $20,000 per year to attend a 4-year university. In contrast, trade school generally has a much lower total tuition. When you look at the numbers, you can make a strong case for trade school as simply the best financial decision.
At New Age Spa Institute, our vision is to empower through education to live healthy, wealthy, and wise. Our elite educational team helps expand our students’ career options as they develop into creative and successful professional beauty and wellness professionals.
The commitment to build your technical skills to the next level is a NASI highlight. You’ll see why the name “New Age Spa Institute” precedes itself and is renowned in the Midwest from Chicago and O’Hare to Milwaukee/Madison, WI and Gary/Munster, IN.
