One to one career consultation is for students who prefer individual over group workshops. It is tailored to consider the individual differences, needs and goals of the students. The workshop provides a safe environment where young people can uncover the answers to their questions. It facilitates their awareness of how beliefs about themselves and their future influence their career decision.
All of our services are administered online.
This programme aims to guide Year 12 students in making a prompt career decision. It is tailored for students who feel time pressure, are indecisive about their degree of choice or would like to verify their decision. Students complete the 300 question TurQuest inventory developed in the UK to learn the career areas and degrees in line with their interests. They can assess how realistic and suitable their career areas of interest are through the mini self check questionnaires. In light of the evidence from the report, students can make an informed decision about their degree and career choice.
This programme is similar to, but more comprehensive than, the TurQuest 1 Consultation Service as it considers the internal and external factors influencing the career decision. It will be most beneficial for students who have sufficient time and can be more flexible in their high school or IB subject selection. The 300 question TurQuest Inventory provides students with detailed information about the career areas/occupations in line with their interests. In light of this information, they make informed choices about their high-school subjects and/or university degrees. They evaluate different sectors and assess their personal suitability by completing mini self check questionnaires that outline relevant essential and desirable qualities. Accordingly, they make a career action plan. Students consider career planning as a process, and reflect on their unique definitions of success, happiness, life, and career values.
This programme gives an opportunity for families who prefer to make their decisions as a team and who are open to cooperation and communication to consider the career decision making process from a scientific perspective. Family members discuss their answers to the questions posed in an open and safe environment in the presence of a career counsellor. Family members evaluate where the student stands in relation to career planning preparation and adaptability to the future. Hence, we will come to a common understanding of the family’s current position, setting a solid foundation for realistic career planning. We will discuss the ways in which we can transform abstract concepts into concrete strategies and behaviours.
The most comprehensive and personal growth focussed CAPS career counselling service including all of the CAPS modules. The various factors affecting the career/occupation decision are considered holistically and systematically. Students evaluate the career areas of interest identified in the TurQuest Inventory by focusing on themselves and their inner dynamics. They learn how the teenage brain functions and impacts beliefs, emotions, attitudes, thoughts, behaviors which, in turn, influence the career decision. They work on translating abstract concepts into concrete strategies and behaviours. They learn the associations between job satisfaction and planning, self-confidence with cooperation and responsibility, curiosity with asking questions, and consultation with communication. Students begin to understand that the answers to existential questions such as “Who am I? What do I plan to be? What do I expect from life?” are dependent on the chosen career area in which they will spend approximately 80,000 hours.
“I do not know how to cope with stress.” “I don’t feel confident” “I feel anxious while making a decision which leads to indecisiveness” “I keep postponing the tasks I need to start”, “I can’t manage my time effectively”, “I have very high expectations of myself and I worry about being unsuccessful” “I do not know why I want certain things”
The above statements are just a few examples of young people’s thoughts… To help nurture crucial skills during their tough adolescent years, we offer Additional services aimed at supporting students in developing a solution-oriented point of view.
