Student Views on Vocational Guidance: Findings on Chronic Deficits - Suggestions to Meet Students Needs
AbstractThis article examines the absence of Vocational Guidance (VG) courses in the Greek educational system, as well as the reasons why these do not exist. At the same time, the need and usefulness of this subject is assessed with regard to both the educational system and the entire Greek society. Our findings show that when there are no VG in Greek schools, graduates find it difficult to choose a profession that suits both their physical and mental abilities, as well as their life aspirations. The issue is not only quantitative but also qualitative; namely, it is important to determine the most suitable manner and method for the presentation of existing professions in the classroom, which will encourage students to further explore them. Presented below, are the tables and diagrams that emerged following an extensive research among middle and high school students throughout Greece, in order to accurately prove the above deficit in this field.
