It’s back to school season again, and you still haven’t made the decision to go back to school. You have a pile of excuses you’ve relied on for years now. Maybe this year you will finally make a change. No more staying behind. Florida Technical College makes it easy for busy adults to stop putting off college and get the education and career of their dreams.
These five excuses shouldn’t hold you back anymore.
Intimidating Class Sizes
FTC’s classrooms aren’t what you see in the movies and at large universities, where students are merely a number to their professors. Instead, intimate classrooms provide each student the individualized attention they deserve and require to succeed.
Large Time Commitment
Working adults with families have so many responsibilities taking up their time that they may believe it’s impossible to find time for education. The truth is, FTC’s flexible scheduling allows you to invest in yourself while remaining dedicated to your family and occupation.
Too Many Class Subjects
Keeping track of your busy everyday life can be challenging enough without having to learn several subjects at once. Florida Technical College offers the right learning environment with focused learning programs in which students take one course per month. This allows students to deep-dive into each course and emerge with practical knowledge to apply in the workplace.
Daunting Financial Investment
With everything life throws at you, it may seem unrealistic to allocate a large portion of your budget to college. FTC offers federal assistance to qualifying students through the U.S. Department of Education. There are also a number of federal, state and military grant programs available for funding your career training. Whatever your situation, an FTC financial aid representative can work with you one on one to design a financial plan that works for you.
Unnerving Job Market
Many students fear not being able to find a job in their field after college. FTC’s career advisors partner with students to ensure their professional development from the moment they enroll. From job search and networking workshops to resume writing and mock interviews, FTC students are set up to land a job and excel in their careers.
Since FTC helps aspiring students overcome their fear of going back to school, you’re free to pursue the career of your dreams with courage. It’s time to hop off the fence. Remember, an investment in yourself always pays the best interest.
