Trade School Or Community College: Which Is Right For You? [Infographic]

Students just out of high school face a challenging decision. Gone are the days of working all summer in order to pay for the following semester of classes. With tuition at an all time high and fair-paying entry level positions hard to come by, the choice of where to continue one’s education carries a lot of weight. More and more students are opting for a more practical side of education: trade school.

Today, college is an essential part of education and long term success for a career path, but is priced as a luxury. In fact a large portion, 30%, of students worldwide only attend college because they think it’s the normal progression after high school. For those whose chosen career paths require a bachelor’s degree and if time and funds are available, a four-year school is a very viable option; but this simply isn’t true for every student.

Trade schools offer fast tracked courses with no requirement for unrelated general education courses, presenting a unique opportunity to those who are eager to begin their careers. Students who opt for trade school often prefer a hands-on learning environment for their chosen specialized program, leading them into their career field faster than the average college student.

Four year colleges used to be the norm but it is no longer a one size fits all situation. Take a look at this infographic for more on higher education options outside of a traditional four-year college, how trade school is helping grow a new generation of professionals, and how to select the right options for your own higher education.
