Why come for career guidance while still in high school?

It can be daunting for your child to have to know what to do with the rest of their life while they're still only in high school. Some young adults prefer to take a gap year and figure out what it is they really want to do. Others rather want to jump right in to the world of studies or work. But when it comes to deciding what to study after school or what career to follow, the decision often proves overwhelming. The aim is to help high school students discover where their abilities and interests lie, how they function at their best, and what matters most to them in life. In so doing they can gain greater insight into factors that will have an effect on their future career success and fulfilment. Although the world is changing and people will often engage in multiple jobs throughout their lives, knowing your own areas of strength and how you function optimally is still of great worth in your career journey. It can enable you to make sound decisions about your career path no matter where the journey takes you.

What can your child expect when coming for career guidance?

The objective of career guidance is to assist your child in recognising their abilities and aptitude, their unique personality characteristics, their areas of interest, and the factors they value most in life. All of these components will play a part in determining how and when they will function at their best and how they can thrive in their career. 

In the career guidance process psychometric assessments as well as more qualitative assessments and discussions are utilised. The assessments typically last a few hours. After the assessment part of the process has been completed, your child will receive a written report with the assessment results and recommendations, which will be discussed in a feedback session with you and your child.
