The subjects, courses, educational institutions chosen by students have a substantial impact on the course of their personal and professional development. Cambridge Schools strive to provide expert career guidance and counselling to their students, aimed at ensuring informed decision-making. 

Cambridge School, Noida, has set up a Career Resource Centre to cater to students of Classes 9 to 12. This initiative has been taken in collaboration with Jitin Chawla’s Centre for Career Development (JCCCD). In addition, Cambridge Schools’ in-house career counsellor regularly visits the school to meet students on a one-on-one and group basis.  

Comprising a series of workshops on different themes related to career planning, regular visits by expert counsellors, psychometric assessments, and one-to-one interactions between students and the counsellors, the Career Resource Centre aims to facilitate informed career decision-making among students. The counsellors acquaint students with the plethora of career options available to them and the evolving industry trends. One of the major focus areas of the counselling process is to disseminate among students an understanding of how they should find the best match between their personal strengths and the opportunities that the industry offers.

Below are a few glimpses of some recent career counselling events conducted at the school.

Parents’ Orientation Program

The school organised a Career Orientation Program for the students of Classes 10 and 12 and their parents on April 6’ 23. The speaker for the program was career counsellor Mr. Jitin Chawla. The session provided insights into the myriad of career opportunities available for students based on the subjects they choose. It also highlighted the lesser-known professions in various fields, broadening the audience’s awareness about new and unexplored opportunities. Students and their parents were informed about some important competitive exams like the CUET, significance of co-curricular activities for building a strong profile, optimally using online resources, and much more. 

Annual career fair

The school hosted its annual college and university fair, “Edufair”, on August 18’ 23. The event welcomed students from classes 9 to 12, along with attendees from sister schools – Cambridge School, Srinivaspuri, and Cambridge School, Greater Noida. Some of the renowned higher educational institutions – Ashoka University, Sonepat, Masters’ Union, Pearl Academy, ICAI, OP Jindal Global University, and many more – participated in the fair and apprised the students of their offerings. 

Psychometric testing and individual counselling

The school, with an aim to help each student make a well-informed choice of subjects in Class 11, organised psychometric testing for the batch of Class 10.

This was followed by individual counselling sessions with senior counsellors from JCCCD. The objective of the assessment was to provide students with insights into their aptitude, interests, and personalities, and integrate that awareness with their subject and career choices.
