Guidance counselor urged young people to do their due diligence before studying abroad –

Education Employment Study


Ghanaians wishing to study abroad were advised to do their due diligence on the professional options available before applying for a course in a particular country and also take advantage of its skills shortage list.

Mr. Papi-Paulo Zigah, Director of International Operations, Future Careers Ghana, said it was important to channel courses related to areas of easy access to employment after graduation, adding, “Do not don’t just choose a course, choose a course that relates to the career shortage area of ​​this country because it opens doors for you”.

He said this during a job fair organized by Future Careers Ghana for students and graduates in Tema, dubbed: “Discover opportunities to study and work abroad”.

Future Careers Ghana is a vocational education provider, committed to creating long-term employment opportunities for young people through career guidance, planning and development, providing work-based learning to school leavers and connecting with employers through the ‘career bakery’.

The event aimed to help young Ghanaians bridge the career guidance and counseling gap and familiarize them with the career opportunities available.

Zigah said a career objective, which is crucial for studying abroad, should be considered as a guide in choosing the right courses.

He called for thorough research on the school one wishes to attend, knowledge of the laws in force in the country, accommodation and culture, among others.

Ms. San Zigah, Chief Executive of Future Careers Ghana, said core subject results are highly considered when applying to a school adding; “You have to have at least grade C in these subjects.”

The school’s request for financial aid as well as support from parents and other stakeholders has been important in obtaining visas, she said.
