With the pressure of getting through matric and completing portfolios, all too often, school leavers leave enrolling for university or college too late. Of course for some, it is simply a problem of not knowing what career to enrol for. And unfortunately for others, results may not be high enough to open doors to the career of their first choice.
“We firmly believe that tertiary studies is the best option for school leavers. Even for those taking a gap year, a short skills course will assist you to earn some cash while studying or working part-time,” says Kerry Damons, marketing manager of Boston City Campus and Business College.
Short skills courses are extremely popular with many people – they aid in building on an existing career or CV, they add skills so that you can move horizontally in a company, and they equip learners to begin employment while they carry on with studies or travels. so a computer course may be ideal to enter any job sector. Short courses are able to equip these students with very useable, employable skills that are in demand or needed in the market.
Boston City Campus and Business College offers over 80 full career programmes, which can be studied part time or full time if you choose.
