The Benefit Of A Trade School
With the job market continuing to flounder, many people find themselves out of work. New Castle School of Trades has campuses in New Castle, PA, and East Liverpool, OH so people can begin career training in many different trades. The present economic conditions offer the perfect opportunity to go to trade school.
Trade schools offer a wide array of vocational programs, including:
- Automotive Technology
- Combination Welding
- Commercial Truck Driving
- Machinist Technology
- Refrigeration/ AC Technology
Assistance in Finding a Job and Tuition Cost
In addition to offering such a quality line-up of marketable career training, trade schools offer graduates job placement assistance. The school has a pulse on the technical job market, so they know just what local employers are looking for in a new hire. Students at vocational schools are taught resume-building and interviewing skills that will give them a head start in finding an excellent job. The schools want to make their quality vocational programs accessible to all students, even those with limited finances.
NCST assists students in obtaining various measures of financial aid to those who qualify in Pennsylvania and Ohio, including:
- Federal Pell Grant
- Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency Grant (PHEAA)
- Federal PLUS Loan (PLUS)
- Subsidized Federal Stafford Loan (FSL)
Trade Schools also offer tuition financing for their advanced career training programs. They advise all students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as the first step on the road to financial assistance. Applicants to tech schools must pass an entrance examination. In addition, the applicant will submit an application form as well as take part in an interview. The schools use a combination of these three methods of assessment to determine which applicants are accepted.
These quality vocational programs combined with job placement assistance will place you on the path to an enjoyable and satisfying career.
