Now his is a good one too! If you don’t know me, I have a degree and a masters, I am a qualified nutritional advisor and I am currently completing a qualification in aromatherapy. So obviously I am a fan of education.
However, I don’t think I have got where I am in my career because of my qualifications. Obviously I have included them on my CV, but I don’t think any employer has asked me about them!
I do think that the school system is a little backwards though. It. Might have changed a bit since I was there, but for me vocational studies didn’t exist and my school really pushed for you to go to uni!
I hope that by the tie Ezra goes to school it is better and he is encouraged to take subjects that he is genuinely interested in, not just what people say will be best for him.
When you are a child it is so exciting to think about what you are going to be when you grow up and I think when you hit school you can loose that a bit. Forced into reading books that are chosen for you and not by you. And being made to take exams even when you don’t o very well with exams.
Obviously I will encourage Ezra to try his best in school but will also support him in what he wants to do (within reason!!)
I would love to be able to help him reach his dreams and goals and I am quite happy that getting a higher education might not be needed for this!
I find it funny that the cost of uni is such a big thing for a lot of people, but in reality I graduated quite a while ago and haven’t really paid that much back! If you want to go to uni, I say go for it! Don’t let the cost hold you back! I had the best time at uni and although I don’t feel like my qualifications have played that much in my current career I do feel like I wouldn’t be the person I am today without my experience from the 4 years I was there.
