College and Careers
Career counselling helps students assess factors that influence their future such as educational attainment, personality, interests, values, aptitudes, work experience and parental expectations.
Numerous events take place through the year including Annual Careers, University and College Fair and seminar programme. There are Individual university presentations and attendance at external presentations in Chiang Mai. Please see more below.
Career planning can be daunting and challenging. Career counseling helps students find answers to questions. Career counselling does not tell students what they should do. It is about working together and includes parents in the process.
Prem aims to provide each student up to date information and informed self-awareness that leads to high expectations of future achievements and provide an appropriate level of guidance, advice, advocacy and support. Please see more below.
A Note from the Careers and College Counsellor.
Career planning can be a daunting and challenging task for students and their parents; the Career and College Counsellor at Prem is there to help in this process and make it more manageable. I will help students to understand and examine the various factors that influence future career development and choices. These factors include things such as educational attainment, personality, interests, values, aptitudes, work experience and parental expectations.
Career counselling does not tell students what they should do, rather the counsellor is someone to talk to about thoughts, ideas, feelings, and concerns about career and educational choices. I am there to help students sort out, organise, and make sense of these thoughts and feelings. The process is a collaborative one as I work together with students and parents to provide personalised advice, guidance and support. It facilitates the process of students locating resources and sources of information and provides answers they have not been able to find themselves.
Support is provided through different means including 1:1 interviews, group sessions, psychometric tests and the opportunity to meet university and college admissions tutors. Ensuring up to date university, college and labour market information is available is the key to enabling students to make realistic, informed decisions for the future.
The careers and college office will communicate with universities, colleges and employers from around the world, advocate for students if required and arrange the necessary information, documentation, transcripts and recommendations to meet the needs of each individual student and institution.
