As we know there are innumerable pupils from rural areas are facing a problem in choosing appropriate career paths as they lack awareness on various occupational paths. They are confronting critical challenges in designating career paths as most of their parents and guardians are deficient in literacy, so that they are unable to receive proper guidance from past generations which forces them to join undesired courses. Hence, majority of the students opt for normal courses and later plunge out due to reduced interest in that particular field. In the contemporary world there is a huge requirement and weightage for highly qualified graduations but the normal graduations are unable to cope up with the job profiles in various disciplines which hinder the nation’s development.
Life Skills and Career Guidance Sessions
In India according to National studies conducted by Ministry of Human Resource Development, it was recognized that only 18% of the students have preplanned career paths and became successful in accomplishing their desired professions. Remaining 82% of the students are unable to enter into their desired sector which leads to decreased productivity.
Therefore, BBG Bangaru Talli Charitable Trust is trying to enhance the awareness among the rural students by providing Life Skills and Career Guidance Sessions in Govt. School associating with the Nirmaan Organization. As a part of this initiative, there are three steps in career guidance counseling sessions. The Trust became successful in accomplishing its first step by enlightening them about basic life skills and further way of higher education in the month of September. More than 490 students from grade 9 & 10 have taken active participation in the sessions.
