Reality check : Students (and parents) continue to live in the following bubbles
Bubble #1: They are very well informed (because of smart-phones) and aware of all options but the fact is
85% Opportunities are MISSED by Class 11 & 12 students
And that 'free' advice & information available via Internet search is mostly subtle advertisements and unverified/outdated content.
Bubble #2: That they make informed career choices
but the fact is
62% students after Class 10 do NOT choose a Stream based on their interest and preferences
And over 45% Class 11 & 12 students make career choices due to peer influence
Challenges faced by schools
Pressure from parents on school to help students in their career path planning / decision making
Inadequate skills in Career Support
Full-time career counsellors are a cost drain on the school
