The school-leaving phase is a critical period in the life of a student. Appropriate career planning is vital to ensure that students are well informed about career options and that they are able to understand their own capabilities and align themselves with potential future career choices.
Making the right choice depends largely on a student's possessing a thorough knowledge of oneself as well as the work environment. Students should be clear about their interests, values, needs, aptitudes and abilities. The career guidance programme provides students with comprehensive career options and helps them to seek avenues that match their abilities.
