Career Guidance Councellors

What is a Career Guidance and Counselling Program?

It is a comprehensive, developmental program designed to assist individuals in making and implementing informed educational and occupational choices. A career guidance and counseling program develops an individual’s competencies in self-knowledge, educational and occupational exploration, and career planning.

How we can assist:

  • Subject Choice and Career Guidance: Grade 9
    FET subjects choices made upon self-analysis and exposure to suitable career fields.
  • Study & Careers Guidance: Grade 12.
    Essential information for township and rural learners who often lack knowledge about the world outside of their residential areas, and the variety of available study, training and employment opportunities – advice, guidance and relevant documentation on the range of full- or part time study, learnerships, apprenticeships, job opportunities, application procedures etc.

Who Benefits from Career Guidance and Counselling Programs?
Everyone benefits–youth and adults, male and female, disabled, disadvantaged, minorities, limited English proficient, incarcerated, teachers, administrators and parents.

What Is Our Focus?
Our primary engagement is with management and delivery of curriculum and overall school management and governance.

Particular focus is on the areas of literacy and numeracy at the Foundation and Intermediate Phases. We also offer support for Maths, Physical Science and English teaching and learning at Senior Phase and Further Education Training levels of schooling.

Study Tips

Although effective study skills strategies are critical for academic success, for many reasons students are seldom taught them. Perhaps chief among these reasons is simply that teachers assume students already possess such skills, having picked them up in the earlier grades. For this reason, study skills instruction improves the academic outcomes of all students, especially those with LD and ADHD.

  • Help learners identify their strengths and weaknesses.
  • Teaching of effective time management.
  • Learner Motivation.
  • helping learners plan and schedule their work effectively.

Greening and Recycling

Funda Afrika encourages schools to make an effort in understanding their environment and what can be done to preserve it. The initiative entails planting of trees and education on which products are recyclable and compostable.

When approaching the analysis with an open mind, it becomes clear: greening schools might be the most cost-effective path toward improving school performance. In fact, it might be the only educational achievement enhancing path that is also “profitable” due to energy and operational cost benefits even without considering the secondary job creation, student/teacher health and tertiary benefits.

Each aspect relates to a Green School goal:

  • Learners and Children.
  • Parents.
  • Volunteers.
  • Partners.
  • Suppliers.
  • Neighbours.
  • School board trustees.
  • Green School advisors or mentor.
