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 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.”
