Guidance and counseling play a vital role in our lives, as we naturally seek advice when faced with unfamiliar situations or choices. Throughout our life journey, we encounter numerous unfamiliar situations, regardless of our age, especially in a rapidly changing world. Relying solely on traditional beliefs is no longer feasible in today's dynamic society. Our ways of living, working, and interacting have undergone significant transformations. These changes, combined with the demands of a fast-paced and competitive world, often leave individuals feeling bewildered, powerless, stressed, and overwhelmed. Even school-going children are not immune to these negative effects. This underscores the importance of providing accessible guidance and counseling services to empower individuals in managing stress and enhancing their personal growth.
The National Education Policy 2020 places a strong emphasis on guidance and counseling services to support the holistic development of students. By integrating these services at various stages of education, the policy aims to create a more well-rounded and capable generation of learners.
The vision of a Department of Guidance and Counseling is to cultivate a compassionate and empowering environment that fosters the holistic well-being and personal growth of individuals.
The mission of guidance and counseling is to provide individuals with the necessary support, resources, and guidance to help them navigate various aspects of their lives, make informed decisions, and achieve personal, academic, and career success.
