Director’s Message

Dear Head Teachers and Teachers,

  • Do your students really explore the career areas which suit them?
  • Do they have clear and realistic knowledge about their own decision making dynamics, the skills  required of various occupations, and the concept of career maturity?
  • Do they know the impact of instincts, needs, emotions, beliefs, and values on the career decision?
  • Are they fully equipped to manage the career and occupational choice process?

In order to answer these questions effectively, we considered the dynamics that exist between the student’s, school’s, teacher’s, and parent’s needs and developed CAPS: Career Assessment and Planning System.

Our aim is to support students’ academic, career, and social-emotional development through reliable scientific inventories and activities. 

We developed our online inventories, fast reporting system, programmes for teachers and classroom application to be in line with the new secondary education career curriculum. 

If you would like to build your students’ understanding of the small yet important details within the wider picture, nurture their self-understanding, help them acquire the knowledge and skills they need to manage their careers and nurture clarity of mind, it would be our pleasure to meet you. 

Warmest regards,

Püren Savaş Gedikoğlu

Director
