Applications Open For the Career and College Counseling Foundation Program at IC3 Institute

Date: Jan 9, 2024

Deadline 10th January 2024

About

At IC3 Institute, we strongly believe that there is a profound impression a subject teacher leaves on individuals for a “Lifetime”! For instance, one may not remember the doctor who treated him/her in Grade 8 but will surely recall the teacher who taught in Grade 3. The teacher’s passion and method of facilitation often inspire students to take up that subject in their higher education. Hence, introducing Embark which is the foundation program for career and college counseling will help school teachers to build purpose in students’ lives and improve academic engagement for all.

This program aligns and furthers the IC3 Institute’s ideology of making career counselling an integral function in schools, as basic and as important as English and Math. With the growing need and relevance of career counselling, the ratio of full-time counsellors to students is not conducive to providing the support that students need. This cannot be achieved by ONE counsellor in the school, it needs the support of every teacher who can be at least a 10% career counsellor.

Career and college counselling is also instrumental in helping teachers bridge the gap between academic knowledge and its practical application and to make learning joyful by making careers come alive in the classroom for students. Simply put, teaching involves imparting knowledge and career counselling involves linking that knowledge to the world outside. A Physics teacher can teach the concepts of sound and radio technology, but when the teacher can help the student see the application of these concepts around them- the acoustics of a classroom, the way our smartphones function, they partly inculcate career counselling into their lesson plan. The Counseling LaboratoryTM pedagogy used by the IC3 Institute equips teachers with the resources to contextualize classroom teaching and correlate academic subjects with the real world of work.
