You’re not quite finished yet. Now
you will need to undertake some concrete steps in preparing
to enter a post secondary education or training program. These
steps relate to the following questions:
Do you currently possess all the entry requirements for the
program? If you are in high school, are you taking the
right subjects now to prepare you for your program? You can find
this information in Saskatchewan
Job Futures and What To Study.
If you are no longer in high
school, do you need to go back and upgrade, take some additional
classes, finish high school, take some literacy training?
Are you familiar with the admission procedures for the institution
you have chosen? You can obtain this information by going
directly to the institute’s web site via Post
Secondary Institutions on SaskNetWork.
Are you prepared to make the adjustment to post-secondary
life? Your post-secondary years will be very challenging.
They can also be very rewarding. The key to success is learning
how to balance your studies and extra-curricular activities
whether these be job related or personal interest.
You will have a significant amount of work ahead of you. For
many, it will mean living away from home for the first time.
If this is the case, you’ll have to budget your money,
pay bills, buy groceries, do laundry and housework, prepare
meals and perhaps cope with being sick.
You may have, as many students do, a part-time job. If so,
you’ll have to learn to manage your time.
