Career Guidance & Counselling at DIPS-G

At Dubai International Private School-Garhoud, we aim to provide students with a strong pre-university foundation by guiding them through the transition from the high school stage to the college/university stage, through the diligent deliverance of all the assistance and information needed to meet the graduation and university requirements. This is done through a robust career and guidance counselling program as well as a rich range of informational sessions and events hosted by both local and international universities and academic institutions. The overall goal of this department is to assure the preparedness of students as they enter university and/or the professional workforce.

We believe that each transition which is smooth and enriching for students, will pave their way to making wise and sound decisions regarding their post high school stage and choosing successful educational goals.

The career counsellors help students discuss their concerns about career and educational choices. We help them figure out who they are and what they want out of education, career, and life. Students have individual and family sessions with the counsellor where a personal analysis of their ideas, feelings and choices is conducted.

These sessions help us assess students interests and abilities. Students are made aware of the new and diverse career options available to get a clear head start in their professional lives. These sessions empower the students to have a deeper perspective and a sense of career self- awareness. It provides essential support and boosts the morale of a student and builds their motivational level. In addition to this, students are also guided through the university application procedure to determine next steps related to the admission process. The Career and Guidance Department is the backbone of high school since it is the engine that drives the students towards their futures and assures their career readiness which is one of the most important ingredients for high school completion and graduation.

Students Support

Promoting mental health in our school and encouraging our students to speak up and share their concerns is our top priority. We support our students emotionally and socially to flourish in their educational journey, build resilience against hardships, and be provided them with sufficient skills and confidence to seek help for early intervention. Some students experience stress and anxiety resulting from studies; others experience loneliness in school, and some might bring their problems from home. We try to target and tackle every factor that may influence our students’ emotional and mental health. Themed days add a sprinkle of fun on the educational process. Furthermore, our students are always welcomed to share and express their concerns and worries.
