In the heat of summer, it can be hard to think ahead to fall, but that’s just what our team here at NSITE is doing. For many of our program registrants, it’s effectively “Back to School” time as they embark on a range of NSITE programs to help them move their careers forward!

According to education research firm EAB (formerly the Education Advisory Board), the top four reasons adults go back to school are:

  1. Make more money
  2. Career Change
  3. Desire to start their own business
  4. Flexibility

Well, we hear all these reasons from our course applicants for attending programs at NSITE also.  Our programs are all offered in a format designed for those who are blind or have low vision. 

Are you interested in advancing your job skills to move your career forward? Want to switch careers, or maybe strike out on your own, to start your own business? Our range of courses are designed to support your career dream. For many of our programs, there are scholarship dollars available to qualifying applicants, and we’re happy to provide you with assistance in completing applications.
