Education has always been dynamic. Curricula changes from time to times. Quality becomes better. Development and change in education is inevitable. Education is a priority for most of the people, especially here in the Philippines wherein it is being considered that education is the only treasure that cannot be stolen by anyone.
Parents want their children to be reared in the best schools. They want their children to have better opportunities through the education that they will get from their schools. Good education will lead to a good employment which in effect will lead to a quality living.
If not all the time, money is always involved in getting quality education. It may not be for the tuition fees but for the requirements that they will need to complete the course. Money may have always been a challenge for some parents in sending their children to a good school. But then, even money is a challenge, it should not be a hindrance for a good education. Because parents are so eager to send their children to school, they would opt to send them to a vocational school, and then continue their education to a four-year program once they already have gathered enough funds to sustain the education.
Being practical, vocational education has a lot of advantage. You may immediately land a job right after finishing a minimum of a 6-month course depending on the requirements of the jobs. Others find opportunities working abroad though vocational education.
Vocational education has its own advantage, however, there are still challenges is how to twist the common beliefs against technical and vocational education. Most Filipinos consider technical and vocational education as inferior and cannot give better life, thus most of the parents and students as well prefer white collar job which resulted to job-skills mismatch based on what the industry needs. The system is producing huge number of college graduates and professionals but cannot land a job commensurate to their qualifications. What the industry needs are skilled workers which only require basic technical and vocational skills.
When the time comes that you already need to choose whether what path will you take in the future and you should plan earlier so you won’t be mess up to decide on what are you going to do in your life after college.
We all have thought that if we attain to finish a bachelor degree in college we are able to have a bright future towards us. Maybe it’s not enough just to finish a course in college, you, yourself must have the skills that an employer or company needs to fulfill the rightful job.
Today in the Philippines, technical and vocational courses are offered which help those individuals to gain the right skills in a short amount of time and to get employed soon after. If ever they are not pursuing to finish a long term studying in college but rather to develop their personal skills.
Money is always there as a problem which stops a student in achieving their goals and dreams in life so somehow these may help them at least to have knowledge of things which produce workers that the market really needs today.
