Career guidance in syllabus likely

Speaking at the inauguration of an engineering career guidance programme, Primary and Secondary Education Minister Vishveshwara Hegde Kageri said career guidance should be made part of the school syllabus to shape careers of students at an early level.

“In my opinion, schools should dedicate at least one hour each week for career guidance programme for the benefit of students. The government is working in this direction to make such initiatives mandatory,” he added.

KPIT Managing Trustee and Chairperson of Adamya Cheth­a­n­a Tejsaswini Ananth Kumar said a student usually has four choices after his engineering degree: corporate world; service sector; government service or become an entrepreneur.

“Our aim is to figure out which course the student is most interested in and to open up all kinds of possibilities in that area. The idea of the Career Guidance Progr­a­m­m­e is precisely this and comprises students, teachers and experts in the field,” she said.
