Parents  circular for  Classes IX to XII

Career Resource Centre 

(10 June 2015)


Dear Parents,

The process of career selection for school children has assumed immense importance. Many agencieshave now mushroomed all over NCR and each agency has its own model of evaluation and career recommendation process. The school authorities have made a deliberate effort to evaluate various agencies for the ease of parents and have identified three agencies which are professional in their approach.

Parents wishing to avail the facility are requested to go through the details given below.Though the school has made all attempts to ensure that the rates are highly subsidized, it is just acting as a facilitator for providing these services in the school premises.Payments,in cheque, will be made directly by parents to these agencies. (TheSchool is not involved in receiving or making these payments to the agencies.Parents are also at liberty to go to any other agency for career evaluation for their wards, if they desire.)

 Interested parents can meet the counsellor w.e.f. July 01, 2015 in the school, in case they wish to avail the above mentioned facility.

Based on inputs available as at present, all three agencies are meeting the minimum testing requirement of assisting students in Subject Selection at +2 levels and formulating student’s career paths.

Agency B seems to be most cost effective and has experienced faculty.

However in cases where students are seeking continuous career related support (as mentioned in the table above) and skill development over a period of four years (class IX- XII), then agency A seems to be effective.

Agency C could be considered in case the student is looking forward to some additional workshops which are not career specific (as mentioned in the table above)
