Director’s Welcome Address,

 

You are warmly welcome to the Careers and Counselling Centre– where we help you make smart life choices.

 

The University of Ghana is a pinnacle of academic pursuit and its Careers and Counselling Centre was set up in November 1970 as the Career Advice Centre with the mission to assist students in formulating and achieving personal, education and career goals. With time, the Centre’s increasing role in counselling called for a name change to the Counselling and Placement Centre in 1977.

Our Hi-5 Strategic Goals

BUILDING A REPUTATION FOR EXCELLENCE IN LEADERSHIP : to work with recruitment experts to identify students with leadership talent and take proactive steps to nurture and produce graduates who would be distinguished around the world for their professional, employability and exceptional leadership qualities.
DEVELOPING STRONGER TIES WITH INDUSTRY : to develop programs that encourage students to participate in enrichment activities, and devise new mechanisms of network with organisations which will strengthen opportunities for students to engage the world as part of their academic work. This will help students build up approaches that are appropriate to different situations in life outside the University.
DEEPENING OUR ENGAGEMENT THE PUBLIC :our public engagement will be extended beyond the UG campus to raise awareness of the need for early career planning in Senior High School (SHS) students. Our SHS Career Planning Programme on this all important subject will eventually produce graduates who are not only confident about their career choices, but also prepared to exercise social leadership and environmental responsibility by supporting others to achieve personal goals.
BRINGING COUNSELLING TO THE DOORSTEP OF STUDENTS :to make counselling support easily accessible to students to increase the number of students who are more confident and free in their minds to pursue their academic goals. Students will make significant progress in their academic pursuits as they receive guidance to chart clear and ambitious but achievable goals.
PURSUING HIGH PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS : to adopt the highest professional standards in all our engagements – whether in engaging with our stakeholders from all walks of life, in managing our resources or in pursuing continuous quality improvement. That will ensure that the name University of Ghana (and its Counselling & Placement Centre) always resonates Quality and reflects Excellence wherever mentioned.
