Structures and Strategies that Affect the Organisation of Career Guidance Programmes in Second Cycle Schools

Theresa Dede Lawer


The research delved into structures and strategies that affect the organisation of career guidance programmes in second cycle schools in the Kumasi Metropolis of Ghana. The descriptive survey was used for the study, and it adopted both qualitative and quantitative research paradigms in gathering the data. A total of 432 subjects participated. Out of this number, 420 were students, 6 were Guidance Coordinators, and 6 were Heads of Institutions. It was found that among the six (6) Guidance Coordinators only tow (2) were professionally trained Counsellors.  It also came to light that all the Guidance Coordinators were full-time teachers and as such could not devote much time for guidance and counselling activities. For a greater impact to be felt in the delivery of career guidance programmes there is the need for full-time professionals who would have ample time, and also devise various activities that promote career education in schools.
