The Importance of Education in Everyday Life
In the current economic climate, education is a definite ‘hot topic’. Whether it’s around the dinner table or on the parliament floor, everyone has an opinion. However, the fact remains that a quality education is an imperative part of the development of a child.
Whether you’ve completed the GCSE programme or managed to get yourself an A-level or two, how far you’ve come in education really does make a difference. The following examples are just a handful of ways in which quality schooling could make a significant impact everyday life.
According to research done by the BBC, those that have a degree are half as likely to be unemployed for longer periods of time. Far more jobs now demand degrees as an absolute minimum requirement, and the playing field is getting more competitive all the time.
You’re no longer pitching battle against locals alone either – willing and able people from overseas are arriving in the UK with a fantastic skill set that’s been honed by hours of practice and the investment in international tutors. If you want to stand out, it’s time to hit the books.
On average, the higher the level of your education, the more you will earn over your lifetime. This is of course is an average, but it’s nevertheless a statistic that’s hard to ignore.
Countless studies have repeatedly shown that people with a university degree generally earn more than someone without one. Similarly, someone with a Masters will jump into a higher wage bracket compared to the Bachelors counterparts.
So it’s really worth investing in studying before a GCSE or A-Level exam, as those are the grades that Universities will look at. If you’re struggling, think about private tutoring as an additional means of educational support.
The simple fact is that education pays off. Even if you don’t believe that education has any other value (which we believe it does), you still can’t argue against the numbers.
It’s not all about going as far as you can in the rat race. Education also helps you broaden your perspective, meet people from all walks of life, as well as giving you some food for thought.
If you didn’t take you’re A-Level education seriously, we suggest you turn it up a notch come University. Don’t just use it as an opportunity to go on a 3-year pub-crawl, but absorb everything you can from the University experience. And yes, that includes the occasional party as well!
Convinced? How to Maximise Your Education
If our arguments have swayed your thinking, you may be wondering what you can do to up the stakes in the education game. First of all, hard graft really does pay off.
A good quality education can lead to a well-lived and personally fulfilled life for many people. Of course, formal education doesn’t fit everyone’s style and there are plenty of inspiring examples where people have ‘made it’ in life without the educational opportunities that a lot of us have been privileged to.
The bottom line is education is important, and if you’re luck enough to have the opportunity to study all the way up to your late teens or early twenties; make the most of it.
