Via the forum, we, Neerja Modi School have also been able to showcase our school’s thought leadership, facilities and school to educators globally. The forum was attended by university representatives from around the globe and we are being recognized as a pioneer of career and college counselling. At NMS, we have been able to foster valuable relationships with leading regional high schools globally and meet global higher education institutions.
There were focused dialogues on the significance of career and college counselling and how they are an integral function in schools. Responsible counselling is about helping students find answers to three important questions: 1. What to study? 2. Where to study? and 3. How to make it happen?
The Forum provided an outstanding opportunity to learn about best practices in the field of career and college counselling, about country-level systems and opportunities for students to apply to best-fit universities, examine the tools that leading schools globally are using to help guide students and their families through the processes of learning about career options and finding best-fit undergraduate opportunities and so much more.
