Today’s economy has two important aspects, innumerable opportunities and a serious shortage of skills.
No matter your age or background, the economy has room for everyone who can bring skills to the table.
For that reason, AlphaLogic, a private career college, strives daily to serve students, alumni, and the growing needs of the area.
Many new to the concept of private college, workforce training, or career and technical education have many questions. We have included four of the most common here.
What Is a Private Career College?
Private Career Colleges, or PCCs, exist to serve the needs of skills and workforce development aimed at either getting a job or earning advancement in a current position.
Most PCCs specialize in the following fields, including, but not limited to:
- Health Services
- Human Resources
- Applied arts
- Information Technology
Can Career and Technical Education Lead to Good Paying Jobs?
According to the Conference Board of Canada, Ontario alone loses over $24 billion in GDP and almost $3.5 billion in lower tax revenues yearly because the province underperforms in providing a skilled workforce. PCCs strive to close the chasm.
Today’s global economy needs skilled technicians on the ground and in administrative support in a variety of fields. Many certificate and diploma programs today can lead to some positions whose pay can rival or exceed that of masters or doctoral degrees.
It’s a whole new world and our team at AlphaLogic is proud to open the door of opportunity to thousands.
What Standards Do Instructors Meet At a Private Career College?
Our faculty at AlphaLogic did not merely study their fields in school and then directly move into teaching. They actually performed jobs and held leadership positions in their field before joining our faculty. Our students benefit from teaching, advice, and mentoring from instructors who understand their fields inside and out.
In career and technical education, experience counts.
What Is the Difference Between a Traditional University Education and a PCC?
A labor expert recently said that Canada dwelt far too long on the idea that many years of education necessarily translated into practical skills.
Today the economy asks, "what can you do?", rather than, "how long were you in school?."
Traditional schools place a great deal of emphasis on research, athletics, and other endeavors. AlphaLogic focuses entirely on the student experience and outcomes. Students and regional businesses rely heavily on us to make sure that each academic experience leads to mastery of marketable skills.
Our reputation depends entirely on the ability of our students to succeed as individuals and also to add value to the organizations who employ them.
What Kind of Ongoing Relationship Will I Have With the School After Graduation?
From a traditional four year college or university, you will receive much after graduation, if “much” refers to endless fundraising letters asking for money.
AlphaLogic Career College focuses more on helping our graduates achieve after graduation. We offer personalized one-on-one post graduation assistance in charting a career path and connecting with appropriate employers.
Am I Too Old to Go to College?
PCCs often have classrooms with the widest range of students, from 18 years old all the way up to degree seekers in their 40s and 50s.
Oftentimes our students come to us looking to advance in current long held careers or to jump to a completely new field. Whatever your age, AlphaLogic Career College offers a range of productive and purposeful programs to jump start your life and career goals.
