MAD Leadership Foundation offers psychometric assessments and career guidance to aid learners in their career decision-making process. During these changing times, we are still able to provide learners with career guidance through virtual meetings and online platforms. Starting in High School we work closely with our Grade 9, 11 and 12 learners to develop self-awareness and gain valuable career insights in order for them to make an informed career decision. MAD Leadership Foundation assists grade 12 learners in the application process by providing them with all the information they need to submit their applications successfully. The cost of the application fee to three universities is also covered to create options for the scholars if something would go awry.  

Advantages Of Subject Choice & Career Guidance:

  • Identify Abilities: Through career guidance,  aptitude assessments are administrated which identify one’s abilities. This can help identify  strengths and weaknesses and in turn a career choices.
  • Gain Knowledge: Career guidance equips scholars  with knowledge and resources so that they can make an informed career decision. 

 

  • Identify Interests: Through career guidance,  interests are also explored which assists learners in avoiding professions they would not enjoy – this allows them to gain self-awareness and to reconfirm their interests. 
  • Gain Insight: Without guidance, many learners leave school with vague knowledge and resources of employment opportunities and they have little insight into the most appropriate career direction for their abilities, interests and personality. 

Preparing for a career is more than just choosing the right job. It starts with knowing who one is and matching that to a career that best suits them. There are numerous factors that play a role in the process of making a successful career choice. One of the first considerations is a realistic and informed subject choice for grades 9 to 12.
