Career Guidance is making the students aware of the opportunities and the courses available. The students as well as parents are helped by this programme.
Career Counselling is the process in which a Career Counsellor or some qualified professional helps students reach about and select a course or programme of studies or occupation on the basis of their aptitude, interest and capability.
Career Guidance and Counselling are the major needs of the day. Establishing high quality guidance and counselling programme is important in any educational institution. This programme provides improved courses selection for students leading to the benefits for learners, who are more pleased with their selection. Good Career Guidance can help decrease the gap between education and under employment on the one hand, and productive livelihood on the other. Guidance and Counselling programme are often insufficiently promoted in educational institutions, whereas it should be given utmost importance.
Realising its social and moral responsibility Baba Farid Group of Institutions has adopted programme of Career Guidance and Counselling on priority. It has been a part of it right from 2005, besides other educational activities for this purpose a permanent department has been established.
