What is Career and College Counselling?

Nicole Duhig

Career counselling helps students assess factors that can influence their future career development such as educational attainment, personality, interests, values, aptitudes, work experience and parental expectations. Career planning can be a daunting and challenging task for students and their parents.

Career counselling does not tell students what they should do. It is about working together as well as including parents in the process. It provides personalised student advice, guidance and support. It facilitates the process of students finding answers to questions they have not been able to based on their own research.

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 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 institution.
