Construction careers are considered a part of the goods producing industries sector, according to the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics. “The construction sector comprises establishments primarily engaged in the construction of buildings or engineering projects.” Job options include carpenters, construction laborers, construction managers, electricians, operating engineers, and construction equipment operators. Hourly earnings can average from $22 per hour to $50 per hour, depending on the job and the worker’s experience.

One Year High School Graduation Plan

What is it like for a high school student to wake up and suddenly realize they do not have enough credits to graduate on a traditional plan of study? This can happen, and it happens more often than anyone would like to acknowledge. How does it happen? Perhaps a student failed a course or two, they missed a lot of classes due to illness or family circumstances, they moved and changed schools frequently, or they simply did not understand the significance of their lack of focus in their freshman and sophomore years.

GlobalED Celebrates National School Choice Week

More and more parents agree with GlobalED Solutions that education does not have a one-size-fits-all solution.

January 21 - 27 has been set aside nationally for building awareness about School Choice. 

The Best Way to Prepare for College - Online?

Online and blended learning is here to stay in higher education. Some colleges were moving in this direction before Covid 19, but during the height of the pandemic, even the most reluctant professors were forced to adapt to the world of online education. Now, even though in person learning is back, many colleges and universities are utilizing and expanding online and blended learning resources in order to offer more options and to broaden the net to reach more students with their programs.

Forgotten Students

During the busy holiday season it is easy to become so focused on our own preparations and celebrations that we forget about those who may not be looking forward to their holiday break at home. Students can be at risk for many reasons, including living in unstable or violent households, living in poverty, or experiencing homelessness. How can these students best be supported through the holiday season?

Whether students attend traditional school or choose online classes, families want to know that their child’s school is a place where they can improve, set goals, and meet those goals for the future. At GlobalED, student data shows an undeniable upward trend, from state testing to college and workplace readiness.

GlobalED students have many opportunities to access the support they need in their classes, including in-person or live virtual tutoring, live lessons, and 24/7 academic support from certified teachers in all core areas.

Thankfully, at schools like GlobalED, students have networks of support, with bridges and pathways from high school into their chosen career, already built by staff and community members.
