As you make BIG decisions about what you want to learn
(which will determine what you will do for the rest of your life), you also
need to decide where you will study. Universities, FETs and Technology
Universities differ in many ways. Here are a few things to consider when comparing
the pros and cons of different education providers and deciding which campus is
right for you.
Where are they
The campus can be a city center, suburbs, in rural
centers, or just rural areas. Each city has unique personalities and activities
to offer, so think about the different lifestyle, living expenses,
transportation, and people who are most attractive to you. You might prefer
sunshine and beach areas like Cape Town and Durban, or the hustle and bustle of
big city life like Johannesburg and Pretoria.
The size of each campus has a large effect on the
atmosphere, social life and facilities of each institution. Large institutions
such as Johannesburg University and Stellenbosch University have tens of
thousands of students, while some small institutions only have a few dozen.
Some campuses are spread across hundreds of MA while others are limited to one
How difficult they are to
In general, universities, especially the top
institutions in South Africa, are more difficult to get access than other
universities, the University of Technology and the FET. If you are worried
about meeting the admission requirements for a particular course, it might be
best to apply to several places, including non-competitive campuses.
Facilities and services
What academic resources, student support services, and
recreational facilities are available? Large campuses have the convenience of
small towns – you can get everything from haircuts to four-course dishes. On
some small campuses you can’t even get coffee, but you can enjoy a more
While future planning is a part of our daily thinking,
making your dreams realize cannot always be easy and for a single mother of one
or many children this is almost impossibility. She has not only to take care of
her children but to have constant battles with financial situations which may
arise. Such a mother cannot think and plan for further education on her own.
Therefore government and other non profit
organizations lend a helping hand by making grants available for single
mothers. These grants are financial assistance for single mothers who take the
bold step of planning to complete their unfinished college degree in a hope
that once they earn their degree they would find a prosperous job that would go
a long way in supporting her and her children.
You can log on to internet for more information on the
grants available for single mothers. Some websites have loads of information on
single parenting and the kind of financial assistance that is available for
them through many organizations.
Take a bold step and go for these grants so that you
may complete your education. It may seem like a very difficult thing to do
right now but with constant help and support from family and friends and with
the funds provided by grant for single mother, you can make it to the end. But
the end will actually be a new beginning for you and your children as it will
uplift your position in the society with a better job and new career
In today’s uncertain economic
times it is vital we all stay up to date with chosen profession or working
knowledge of expertise in the industry we work within. With the rise in
unemployment in all age groups and significant rise of unemployment in under
25’s, it is now serious cause for concern and important to identify and decide
on sustainable education and employment route.
The “Department for Education
and Skills” (by the UK’s Government) has confirmed plans to raise the
school leaving age in England by 2013, thus young people will be required to
stay in either; full-time education or training, including school, college and
home education, or work-based learning, such as an Apprenticeships, part-time
education, training or volunteering more than 20 hours week.
The new law is called the
“Education and Skills Act 2008”. Essentially this may not necessarily
mean that pupils have to stay in the classroom or continue with academic
lessons however students will have to continue to receive training at certain
level until they reach the age of 18.
This might mean student is
encouraged to stay at school and do (or complete) their GSCEs and levels, if
they have not already done so. Students could improve their skills through
taking course in “Foundation Learning” which will benefit them if
they decide to go in to further education eventually. Another option for
student is to gain some practical experience in subject that interests them by
doing “14 to 19 Diploma.” All of these options will be beneficial for
future development, educational progression and future employment, as it shows
commitment to future employers.
Students can start an
apprenticeship and get some on-the-job experience of work and training, whilst
some carrying on with part-time study. Many companies are offering the new
style “modern apprenticeship” which means student has …
It’s not just about your Planet,
or about your country, your country, your city, your community, or your path;
it’s about your history and what you will do. The protection of our nation’s
history is something that strengthens us in every aspect, large and local. The
conservation movement enables us to produce jobs, build increasingly
sustainable cities, inspire long-term support and assistance for local
residents, but more importantly make it possible to promote deeper
understanding of the importance of historic sites that represent culture,
heritage, national culture, and evolution so they will continue to exist and
grow for future generations.
What happens when current
preservation and their efforts must not only continue our history through the
real buildings they saved but also through the next generation of
conservationists? The main problem facing the conservation community is
reaching new audiences and being able to expand public awareness about the
benefits of conservation. Therefore, it is very important to take the necessary
steps and make proactive plan for what the future of historic preservation will
look like in the years to come. How the next generation of historical
preservation is cultivated through education, the right information, and how to
take action will have profound impact on world conservation efforts.
In today’s youth, it is
increasingly clear that there are disturbing gaps in general, national and
local historical knowledge and that there is an inability to understand the
relevance of history related to their lives today.
So what do we do, can we educate
our young generation so they can protect their history? Can we do it while
making them interested? Yes. Yes.
We are leveraging our efforts into
programs that offer ongoing opportunities for our young people to learn about
this country’s land and the country’s cultural heritage. By engaging authentic
Of late, the demand for
professional courses has been on the rise. There are various reasons behind
this sudden boom in professional courses. Most important among them is an
increase in the number of middle age and elderly people consuming drugs. This
has resulted in the development of several new and effective drugs and
treatment methods. in which corresponds with the sudden increase in demand for
pharmacy technicians. In fact, this demand is only expected to rise further by
2016 thus making the Pharmacy Tech Certification a more promising career

fate during recessions, but the only industry that has been able to withstand
it is the pharmacy. It is not exaggeration to state that despite severe
recession and economic downturn, this industry has been able to create
employment opportunities to many people. In addition, the number of people
looking forward to improved and effective treatments is on the rise. As a
result Pharmacy Tech Certification courses are in great demand.
A pharmacy technician performs a
series of activities that include assisting licensed pharmacists in prescribing
medications, labelling pharmaceutical products, measuring medication
quantities, counting pills and providing guidance to patients while filling in
their medical insurance documents and forms.
A certified technician can seek
employment in retail pharmacies, internet pharmacies, physician clinics, wholesale
pharmacies, medical and surgical centers and even nursing homes. Although the
Pharmacy Tech Certification is not mandatory for securing a job, it only
improves your job prospects and also helps you secure higher salary.
There are several educational institutions
offering special training programs located in several parts of the world. To
become a qualified pharmacy technician, one has to clear the ExCPT Exam and the
minimum eligibility for taking this test is a high school diploma or its
equivalent. Upon obtaining the …
