Career Planning Post Graduation

For students who plan on starting a career immediately after High School, Trade Schools and Employment Training for Adults is an excellent option. Learning styles and passions differ, so pursuing a college degree is not for everyone. We are happy to help find resources for students who aspire to be in the workforce and trade skills industry. 

Employment Training For Adults (ETA Program)
ETA is an extension of Washington-Saratoga-Warren-Hamilton-Essex (WSWHE) BOCES and offers programs in the healthcare industry, skilled trades industry, computer and technology, and apprenticeships. They are in the business of helping people get prepared for a career or advance in a job they already have. Whether it's a single course you need, or you'd like them to help you get an apprenticeship, they are a great resource. They do what it takes to help you get ahead. CLICK TO LEARN MORE
