Admission Brief
Diploma Course in Guidance and Counselling (2023)

The increasing complexities and stresses of modern day living, everyday reports of lack of interest in studies, low achievement, truancy, aggression, behavioural problems, suicide, drug abuse and the like call for provision of guidance and counselling for children and youth in schools. Teachers and other school personnel need to equip themselves with helping skills to promote students’ personal, social, educational, career development and adjustment throughout the school years.

Mental health concerns have been addressed by the National Education Policy (NEP), 2020. The involvement of well-trained social workers, counsellors, and community involvement into the schooling system has been emphasised to optimise student’s learning.

The National Education Policy (NEP), 2020 puts fourth this concern and highlights the urgent need for ensuring “not only cognitive development, but also building character and creating holistic and well-rounded individuals equipped with key 21st century skills”.
