One to One Counselling

To introduce the students to the world of work, JKPS took an initiative for class 10 by organizing a career guidance program "EXPLORE" by Envision India Eduservices. Initially an orientation session was organized to provide relevant information to the students. After the enlightening orientation session, a psychometric test was organized for all the students to help them analyze their aptitude and interests. The psychometric test was held on 15 October 2019 to help the students make their choice as per their aptitude. A comprehensive profile was developed through those tests. One to one counselling sessions were held on 8 November and 10 December 2019. These sessions helped to facilitate decision making on subject and career choice. It also helped students and parents to understand and interpret the results thus helping students make informed choices. It was an opportunity for the students to make a wiser choice in respect of their career.
