Subject Choice and Career Guidance Counselling

I completed a BCom (Hons) degree in Industrial Psychology at the University of Stellenbosch before embarking on a career as a Human Resources practitioner in a corporate environment for a number of years. 17 years ago, I was offered the wonderful opportunity to join Annerie Joubert’s practice as a Career Guidance Counsellor. Since then, my focus has been to add value to children’s lives by providing thorough and personalised Subject Choice guidance to Grade 9 learners and Career Guidance to Grade 11 and 12’s. To date, I have had the privilege to assist more than 1,430 children.

  • Standardised psychometric tests are used to compile a holistic profile of a learner’s ability, aptitudes, interests and personality.

  • A comprehensive report which includes relevant study courses at tertiary training institutions is discussed at length with the learner and parents during the feedback interview.

  • Recommended career choices are based on research results.

  • The continuously changing world of work, new and exciting study opportunities and tertiary training institutions are borne in mind in order to enable learners to pursue and attain their dreams.

Tertiary study is so expensive that it makes sense to invest in professional career guidance!
