Problem Statement

A large number of students for lack of information and guidance usually face countless challenges while applying for courses to study after secondary school. This is because, students are not well equipped with basic skills in course selection early enough. In fact, majority of students are not able to make informed course choices even after completing secondary education due to lack of information and proper guidance while still at their formative years. Because of this career choice inability, many students keep hoping from one course to another trying to find their career paths.  Career satisfaction begins at the Course Selection Stage and if done properly, students are likely to lead a productive and fulfilling career life after their postsecondary education. Coursebook provides students with clear information and course guidance to help them plan for and choose the right courses in pursuit of their postsecondary education, a key education level that empowers students with employability and entrepreneurial skills.

Career guidance in secondary schools in Kenya is not offered sufficiently and thus, making informed career choices is not an easy task especially for many secondary school students. A majority of school going children in Kenya lack access to appropriate career information and guidance. As a result, these students transition to higher education unprepared for their future careers. The careers they pursue are in most cases not aligned to their interests rather than a game of chance. Evidently, majority of the students transitioning to higher learning institutions are pursuing careers they do not like.

When young people pursue careers that are not aligned to their interests and abilities, their career dissatisfaction journey in life begins. This is well manifested in the marketplace today as over 70% of working Kenyans (professionals) are dissatisfied by the nature and tasks of their careers. To promote informed career choices for high school students in Kenya, there is need to offer adequate career guidance and counselling in kenya to enable all students to make informed career choices. We are working passionately to reduce the above numbers so that more school going children can make informed career and education choices. Get easy to use career guidance materials to inspire all children and help them make informed career choices. Get them on career resources page
