Career Assessments

What is a Career Assessment and Guidance?

Career development and career guidance is the process which assist an individual in developing a work identity.

Career guidance is a developmental program that assists young individuals in making mature, informed educational and career choices.

How does Career Assessment and Guidance benefit your child?

The goal with career guidance is to establish a link between the internal career (interest, personality, abilities, skills, aptitude, self-concept, values and beliefs) and the external career (view of success, career anchors and stage of career).

We reach this goal by enhancing the individual’s self observation and self-knowledge, exploring maturation (self-development) and career options

 and facilitating an informed career choice and career plan.

Nevika Singh of the University of Pretoria investigated the career guidance needs of post-secondary learners in South Africa and found that learners have a dire need for:

  • Assistance in overcoming career confusion

  • Information about improving grade 12 results

  • Information on opportunities such as learner ships and employment

  • Information about educational goals

  • Opportunities in the post-secondary environment

  • Support in overcoming constraints such as career confusion and financial challenges

These needs are addressed through career guidance and counselling by means of various screening media.
