Services to learners and prospective students

Prospective students

Career assessment and –counselling

Student Counselling provides career assessment and –counselling in the form of a workshop, or individual counseling, to Grade 11 and 12 learners and other prospective students who’ve completed their school education one or two years ago. This career assessment aims to:

  • Identify your interests, personality strengths, skills, aptitudes and values.
  • Provides guidance on how your personal profile relates to the career world.

You will be assisted in considering career and study options that are most suitable to your personal profile and in your decision as to what study course / career you should pursue.

A fee is charged for this comprehensive, professional service, but follow-up sessions with a student counsellor and visits to our Career Resources and –Information Centre, are free of charge.
