As per a survey by Business World, 98% of the top global universities believe that career guidance at the school level will prepare students for colleges, as per a survey by Business World magazine. But how many school students receive any form of career guidance- a meagre 8%.
These facts expose the ground reality surrounding the school education system in India. The vitality of career counselling cannot be undermined.
So how can this burning issue be resolved?
Through the introduction of cutting edge teacher development initiatives.
Teacher Training: The Need of the Hour for a Better Tomorrow
For students to receive counselling, it is important for teachers to be in a position where they can:
- Make students aware of the plethora of options they face
- Guide students on possible options after school
- Empower them to take a different or bold path
- Counsel them when they face issues or crisis
Keeping this vital aspect of education in mind, UCLA Extension, one of the most prestigious global universities in the world has envisioned the Global Career Catalyst (GCC). It is Asia’s first certification that bases itself on a blended learning approach. It is a professional development program that allows teachers to receive guidance, learn in-trend techniques, and improve themselves with career counselling practices from India and across the world. This gives it a global dimension and helps in professional development for teachers as well. With more than 3000 certified teachers from the top schools across the country, GCC is the program you can use to leverage a better connect with students. It also aids in their professional development and over 90% of the teachers vouch for it.
