Promotion of the Universities Career Counseling Program

The Ministry of Education’s Youth Development Administration (YDA) developed universities career development teaching materials in 2014 to promote the concept of career development. The material is made available for university instructors to utilize in establishing career courses or integration into professional courses within departments. A career counseling handbook was also written as a reference for schools to better understand the different roles and functions of various units and personnel while making the best use of internal, external and governmental resources in joint cooperation.

Utilizing the basis of its research, the YDA drafted “Subsidy Directions for Promotion of Activities of Universities Career Counseling Program”. Career counseling work has been implemented at universities starting in 2015, with subsidies for two types of applications: courses and events. The hope is that this will help departmental instructors provide timely career counseling services or referrals to related information during their first line contact with students. Schools are also encouraged to combine internal and external resources in the promotion of career counseling, enhancing the efficiency of career counseling and facilitating early career exploration, career planning and employment understanding amongst students while they are still pursuing their studies, so that they can make successful transitions to the job market.
