Career guidance is focused on helping students to make decisions based on an understanding of their abilities, skills, interests, work values and personality and on the options open to them. People today more frequently face on-going, successive work and study transitions as well as career changes and developments. This approach also aims at equipping them with career-planning skills to face future decisions. Career guidance is not therefore, simply based on the concept of matching people and jobs.
Self assessment, consideration of external influences such as lifestyle requirements, family pressures, work opportunities as well as research and evaluation of career options and training are all part of our career guidance and transition services.
