Role of counselling

The emerging role of counselling involves helping students to complete their academic objectives; the reduction of student attrition is a priority. Counselors must perform the roles of student developers and guides for learning . As the student developes, counselors must communicate to students the importance of skill building and other academic requirements and help them understand the value of their academic endeavors. The counselors must assist, manage, and encourage students to build a pattern of success. Crucial characteristics that college counselors need to be successful include a strong sense of professional mission, rapport, and empathy.

Responsibility

As student developers, counselors should assume the responsibility of communicating to students the importance of academics in vivid and realistic terms. The goals for the student developer should be to provide counseling, information, and support services to meet the students’ developmental needs. The objectives should be as follows: – To assist each interested student in making informed and realistic decisions in the areas of educational and career choices. – To provide services that reflect the understanding that student development includes social, intellectual, psychological, and ethical development.

The counselor is required to assist, manage, and encourage students to build a pattern of success and to achieve their dream career.

Counselor services should meet the needs of those entering students by providing each student complete information and preparation for entry into appropriate courses. Some of the viable activities include:

  1. Assessing student ability by using placement tests and interest inventories.
  2. Assisting in establishing or clarifying education and career goals.
  3. Helping students use college resources to meet their expectations.
