Q. Vocational Guidance
Vocational Guidance is a long continuous process which begins in the school and is needed throughout the working life of the individual.
Vocational Guidance is an assistance to a person, regarding some vocation.
As per David Super – “Vocational Guidance is the process of helping the individual to adjust in the occupation to make effective use of human power and to facilitate the economic development of society.”
As per national Vocational Association of America – “Vocational Guidance is the process of assisting the individual to choose an occupation, prepare for it and enter upon the progress in it. It is concerned primarily with helping individuals make decisions and choices involved in planning a future and building a career, making decisions and choices necessary in effecting satisfactory vocational adjustment.”
Thus Vocational Guidance assists the individual in the study of technologies and related sciences and the acquisition of practical skills, attitudes, understandings and knowledge relating to occupations in the various sectors of economic and social life.
