3 Ways Online Schooling Helps Students Prepare for Their Professional Life

3 Ways Online Schooling Helps Students Prepare for Their Professional Life

You may have heard that online learning plays a big role in preparing children for their future career(s). As a parent, however, this may sound fairly odd at first.

How can the style of schooling (online or conventional) affect how well your child adapts to and performs in their future career? Let’s find out.

In this blog, we’ll offer a closer look at three ways online schooling promotes better job opportunities, selection, acclimatisation, performance, and progression in the future.

1. Focus on Consistency

At Cambridge Home School, we have a razor-sharp focus on consistency. Our students are encouraged to become strong and consistent learners. We believe that stellar performance cannot amount to anything if it lacks consistency.

While a student may perform exceptionally well in their IGCSEs, they can easily lose their chances of attending a prestigious university if they let go of consistency and secure poor grades in their A Levels exams.

Owing to our focus on consistency, our students are more focused, disciplined, and organised. They approach their classes, homework, revision, and exams with the same mindset. Moving forward, this essential skill accompanies them as they start their career. As a result, they excel professionally.

2. Raising the Bar

Our MA/PhD qualified subject specialist teachers work assiduously to help each student secure top grades. As an institution, we don’t believe in mediocrity or complacency. Our students achieve impressive levels of academic and non-academic success.

Committed to constantly raising the bar (while maintaining strong student mental health), we encourage our students to do the same. They work exceptionally hard and constantly tap into new strengths and skills to become better learners.

This passion for raising the bar follows them in their professional lives. Instead of doing the bare minimum, they perform exceptionally well while maintaining a good work-life balance.

3. Putting Their Mental Health First

Online schooling plays a big role in helping students understand the importance of a healthy school-life balance. It provides students with ample flexibility. Since they aren’t overworked and fatigued like they would be in a conventional school, students retain their energy levels.

They play their favourite sports, socialise with their friends, explore their hobbies and interests, and build their skills after school hours. Instead of solely doubling down on academics, they also keep their mental health on track. As a result, students aren’t at risk of experiencing stress, anxiety, and burnout. As they become adults and start their career, they prioritise their mental health to avoid overworking themselves.

We work hard to teach this fine balance to students. Once mastered, they can perform exceptionally well (better than the average student) and enjoy good mental health. As young professionals, they reach new heights of their career without sacrificing their own mental health.

If you’re considering making the switch to online schooling for your child, explore our homeschooling programs: Primary Prep/Key Stage 2 (ages 8 to 10), Lower School/Key Stage 3 (ages 11 to 13), Upper School/IGCSEs (ages 14 to 16), and Sixth Form/AS & A-Levels (ages 17 to 19).
