Educational guidance and counselling

definition

Advising pupils or students on their educational progress, on career opportunities, or personal difficulties or anxieties.

example of use

Career information, guidance and counselling services are intended to assist individuals with their career management. They often overlap with other forms of personal services, such as job placement, personal counselling, community-based personal mentoring, welfare advice and educational psychology. Frequently, these other services are delivered by people who also deliver career information, guidance and counselling, but there are often separate guidance services that do not provide career information, guidance or counselling (UNESCO, 2002: 17).
