Career Education and Guidance
Career counseling at Cambridge International School aims at providing students a strong foundation by guiding them through the transition from youth to adult members of the society in order to ensure them a bright and a secure future. By exposing the students to different perspectives, the career counseling service supports the efforts of the students in choosing the right subject options.
Students and parents are kept informed through the career news published on a monthly basis about the career related events such as education fairs, seminars road shows and deadlines for sending various application forms to universities. The needs of the students are catered through various career related activities such as workshops, guest lectures and interviews. These activities are conducted with an intention of creating a motivated environment whereby the students are encouraged to plan their future carefully.
Through the career counseling service the students are motivated to be focused on improving their academic performance and developing their strengths. This service emphasizes on preparing the students to anticipate challenges and plan ahead to face these challenges with confidence and a balanced composure.
Formal career sessions begin in Year 9 when they make their IGCSE course choices. Wide range of career related resources such as CD ROMs, prospectus of universities, booklets, guides and career related programs at CIS helps the students to research into their opportunities in Careers and Higher Education. Follow up with parents about the career plans or subject choices of their wards facilitates improved communication and enables the parents and pupils to develop strategies for identifying their preferences, overcome their weakness, build on their strengths and create an awareness of career trends which would go a long way making informed career decisions.
