The Center for Career Counseling and Advisory took a much welcomed initiative by launching an MS Level Program on Career Counseling & Education in 2013. This highly practical program aims at teaching and learning by applying career development theories into the various ongoing activities of the students. Students conduct career counseling interviews with schools, colleges and university students to enhance their career exploration process and help them to make well informed decisions for career planning. So far, 50 audio-video recorded counseling sessions have been conducted.
One of the assignments of the students is to prepare and deliver career-related lessons in different educational institutions with the ultimate purpose to refine their career education skills and practices.
Given below are pictures of career education lessons by the students of C3A:
Five career education lessons were delivered by Hafsa Shafiq Ahmed in Roots School and The Educators.
Four career education lessons were delivered by Maria Saleem in Elite International School.
Eight career education lessons were delivered by Sidra Azher and Nabiha Fida in Roots School.
Three career education sessions were delivered by Salman Khalid in Quaid-e-Azam University.
Since Career Counselling & Education is a practical program, students’ learning is highly dependent upon the field visits organized by C3A. Below given is a brief about such field visits:
