Diploma in Career Guidance and Counselling (DCGC)

Career counselling is a part of behavioural science. It is the process of helping the candidates to select a course of study that may help them to get into a solid profession. A career counsellor helps the candidates to get into the career that is best suited to their aptitude, personality, interest and skills. So it is the process of making an effective correlation between the internal psychology of a candidate with the external factors of employability and courses.

 This discipline is intended to help our younger generation to cope up with ups and downs of life in such a way that they attain positive mental health, self sufficiency, productivity, efficiency, and also create their own position in the world of work. The course contains principles, concepts, and theories of social importance for career development. It also nurtures practical insight about guiding the younger generation towards the pursuits of excellence.

Since 2020, an online version of the course is also available. Run through CIGI Learning Management System (LMS), this allows students from across the globe to access this course.
