Career Counselling

  • A scaffolding approach is used to explore, generate and build career options in students.  
  • Formal psychometric assessment and counselling starts from grade 8. However, exploration of various career options starts from grade 1 onwards in the form of role play of different professions, special celebratory days and visit to places like kidzania. 
  • Special emphasis is given on skill development through internship programs which are organized both internally and externally.  
  • GNT and SEND students are referred to the Careers department. Individual counselling session with parents are undertaken to discuss specific career options.
