Education and success, after college or further education.
Are you an inferior individual than Mark Zuckreberg of Facebook, Bill gates of Microsoft? Are you studying and working hard with many qualifications and degrees but still unemployed? Bottom line is, are you a successful individual after education?
We can see connections between students, education, institutes and success. Many institutes help students to pass exam, get high grade, prepare them for industry through part-time jobs, placement and so forth. Unfortunately, many students are not being successful from their education at the end. Specially in developing countries, where certificates are the main source of recognition, unemployment rate is very high. The rate is also growing in developed countries.Though University or higher (HE) education supposed to extend our professional achievement, but many students are now coming to the universities, as unemployed individuals, to change career or to start their career. College or Further (FE) education prepare student for high rank universities or for high grades. But Majority students don't need this, all they need is success e.g. employment, job, starting business, supporting families after a standard education or qualification.
"Nothing succeeds like success." - Alexandre Dumas,
So, it may be a time to re-design the wheel. Career plan can be started in college or further education (FE). Students can start their career after college and take work experience through jobs or business. After few years, they can start university or higher education. In the link, http://cictr.org/education-success, it's been shown that how different phase can be conducted to get success. However, to get the success FE and HE should work closely for the success of the students.
