Career guidance and counselling programs aim to help students make more informed and better educational and career choices. Among other things, programs offer information on Vocational higher Secondary school course offerings, career options, the type of academic and occupational training needed to succeed in the workplace, and postsecondary opportunities that are associated with their field of interest.
Programs also often provide teachers, administrators, and parents with information they can use to support students' career exploration and postsecondary educational opportunities. Recognizing the importance of career guidance and counselling programs for student's postsecondary success, the Vocational Higher Secondary Education Department plays a key role in supporting State's efforts to build and implement the career guidance and counselling activities.
