What does a guidance counsellor do?A guidance counsellor helps students make choices about their academic and career options while keeping in mind the unique needs and interests of the student and the family.
How is guidance counselling different from career counselling?Guidance counselling involves career and academic counselling and taking a holistic approach to the process by considering the possible stressors and influences in students’ lives.
Why do we need a guidance counsellor in a school?We need a Guidance Counsellor in a school to create a support system for students to help facilitate them in their decision-making process.
What are the activities of a guidance counsellor in terms of students’ career development?Academic advising and consultation; coordinating between external resources (resources available outside of the school campus, in and outside of the network – for example, inter school competitions, opportunities at other institutions like specific scholarships for sports etc.) and student needs; identifying and promoting talents, and creating inspiration and motivation are some of the responsibilities of the guidance counsellor in the academic capacity.
Does the guidance counsellor only work with students that have a problem?No. The counsellor works with all the senior grade students to orient them to the procedures, challenges, and planning of their academic and career options. In addition, one-on-one consultation is scheduled to discuss the personal queries about this process.
