Top 8 Reasons Why You Should Go To A Career College In Ontario

By September 20, 2016 March 4th, 2020 No Comments

1. Innovative and Groundbreaking Programs

Ten years ago, many of today’s most exciting careers didn’t even exist. Ontario’s Career Colleges are leaders in technology and workforce development, preparing students for success in not only the cutting-edge careers of today, but also those of tomorrow.

2. There’s Something for Everyone

Whether you’re business-minded or creative, good with numbers or good with your hands, like working with people or like working with technology, there’s a program that will help you turn the things you’re good at into a successful career.

3. Choose Your Own Path

Choose from Certificate programs that help you build skills and get you working fast, or 9-Month Diploma Programs that prepare you for the career you’ve always dreamed about with a real-life work placement at the end of your in-class work.

4. It’s Never Too Late

With job commitments, a family at home, bills to pay and other responsibilities, are you worried it’s too late to go back to school? Worry not. College classrooms aren’t just for teenagers fresh out of high school. They’re full of individuals at different phases in their lives, from workers looking to upgrade their job skills, to young parents and empty-nesters looking to re-enter the workforce, to adults training for new careers and so many more. Wherever you are in your life, it’s never too late to build your skills and knowledge through a college education.

5. Real-World Experience Before You Graduate

College programs are famous for their unique blend of academic learning and practical skills training. Led by instructors with professional experience, you’ll benefit from hands-on training and real-world projects right in the classroom. You’ll also benefit from industry partnerships and professional relationships that will not only help you find a work placement opportunity, but can also lead to a job immediately after graduation.

6. No Stereotypes, Just Acceptance and Support

There is no typical college student. If you don’t believe us, take a look at these numbers:

  • 65% of college applicants don’t come directly from high school
  • 6% of students have a university degree
  • 14% of students use Special Needs / Disability Services
  • 30% of applicants have parents who did not have post-secondary education

Ontario Career Colleges are dedicated to creating programs and environments that support every student throughout their learning experience.

7. Classrooms that Connect

With class sizes that average around 10-20 people, don’t expect to be lost in the crowd. Instead, expect your classes to be full of spontaneity and energy, with instructors who challenge you to engage openly, ask questions, share ideas and work hands-on to get more out of each class than you ever thought possible. And let’s talk a bit more about those instructors. With real-world experience to draw from, you can count on them to be current on the latest trends and technologies and to keep the classroom connected.

8. Graduate With Less Debt (Need We Say More?)

We saved the best news for last. No one wants to graduate with a mountain of debt, and unfortunately, higher learning comes with a price tag. Ontario Career College programs have significantly lower tuition costs than other post-secondary options, without sacrificing on the quality of the education you receive. They also help get you into the workforce faster, so you can be earning money rather than spending it. In addition to lower tuition fees, there are also thousands of dollars available to Ontario students each year through bursaries and grants, which can help lessen the financial burden even further.
