The school career counsellor’s role in realizing student potential for healthy growth is focused on the three broad areas of academic, career and personal / social development. This is the core of the content for the RIS Comprehensive School Counselling Program, K–12.
Academic development includes acquiring skills, attitudes and knowledge that contribute to effective learning in school; employing strategies to achieve success in school; and understanding the relationship of academics to the world of work, and to life at home and inthe community. Academic goals support the premise that all students should meet or exceedthe local, state and national / International goals.
Career development goals guide the school counselling program to provide the foundation for the acquisition of skills, attitudes and knowledge that enable students to make a successful transition from school to the world of work and from job to job across the life span. Career development goals and competencies ensure that students develop career goals as a result of their participation in a comprehensive plan of career awareness, exploration and preparation activities.
Personal / social development goals guide the school counselling program to provide the foundation for personal and social growth as students’ progress through school and into adulthood. Personal/social development contributes to academic and career success by helping students understand and respect themselves and others, acquire effective interpersonal skills, understand safety and survival skills and develop into contributing members of society.
