Business Education Pays

Education is not just for school age students,
Education is also for people in business and in the work force.

When people think of education, they often think of school and classrooms and homework. For some, the end of their formal education is college, or high school.  However, once in the work force, or business owners, or sales people… gain great benefit from continuing their professional education.  This may take the form of advanced degrees (e.g. an MBA) or in more targetted classes (how to use Excel or PowerPoint).   Some companies will set up custom educational programs to address specific needs or training in skills that they want their employees to have.

mAke the grAde, through our sister service CrossTernal Methodology, offers classes for people in business and sales. These classes focus on prospecting skills, follow up techniques, business automation and time leveraging as well as sales and presentation skills.  Best of all, potential students can ‘test the waters’ with a free consultation at www.crossternal.com

It’s always a good time to learn something new that will improve your skill set.

Summer Educational Options

Summer is an excellent time for educaitonal programs.  With school out of session, students have more time flexibility to work on reinforcing their skills and enriching their knowledge base.  I have found tha there are some common catagories of support that people seek:

  1. Academic Remedication – Student who did not work to potential, or struggled with classes can use the summer for catch up and filling gaps in knowledge.  This is also helpful for students wishing to move up in class levels (example from basic to honors).
  2. Academic Foreshadowing – Students who are going to be taking classes in the fall that they may anticipating neeing  support for can preview the classes.  This is an excellent way to get a jump start on the topic and facilitate the academic year
  3. Test Prep – SAT / PSAT / ACT prep is most easily done over the summer. The students typcially have more time to work on and master material.
  4. Independent School Admissions Tests – ISEE / SSAT  – most independent schools expect these test to be taken in October / November.
  5. College Admissions – This is limited to rising seniors, however applications and the accompanying essays are time consuming.  The essays are an important part of the application process and often require work over time to perfect
  6. Other – what else do you want to / need to learn.
