The autumn tide is here – we’ve had those wonderful long summer holidays. . . . welll several thousand harrassed families have endured them. Now the students are safely back at work and the real business of learning can begin again. I do know several families who are feeling that uiversity may not necesssarily be the only course for their youngster. Many young people baulk at the prospect of yet more learning having to be undertaken. A lot of chaps feel once they’ve done the obligatory GCSEs that time should be taken to do other things. They never then return to the fold. Going for online courses and all sorts of fantastic software education resources is a really good way of keeping in the loop and also finding what they want to finally start working on or with. Many a very bright lad slips through the education net because of the formality of schooling. An online e-learning course would probably be exactly what they seek and desire. A lad we know is taking a course in business marketing simply through his work experience being properly focused and him being placed in the right arena.
