Module 3 – The Career Guidance Model

Definition: The elements of the Career Guidance Model are awareness, exploration, and preparation.


Performance Standard:
At the age-appropriate level of instruction, teacher candidates will explain the use of the career guidance standards and competencies as specified in the South Carolina Comprehensive Developmental Guidance and Counseling Program Model (SCCDGCPM).
The section of the SCCDGCPM dealing with Guidance Standards and Competencies is found in Section IV – “Guidance Curriculum Standards for Student Development” of the Program Model.

Explanation: The purpose of a comprehensive developmental guidance and counseling program in a school setting is to promote and enhance the learning process. To that end, a comprehensive developmental guidance and counseling program facilities student development in three broad areas.


LEARNING TO LIVE (Personal/Social Development)

The development of personal/social standards is an integral part of an individual’s pursuit of success in life. To understand and respect self, relate positively to others, make informed and
safe decisions, cope effectively with change, and become responsible citizens are essential to this process.

The content standards for personal/social development provide the foundation for personal growth. They enhance the personal, social, educational, and career development of the
individual. Students acquire skills to foster relationships with self, others, the family and the community.


LEARNING TO LEARN (Academic Development)

The development of academic and educational standards is an integral part of an individual’s pursuit of life-long learning. Being able to achieve educational success, identify and work
toward goals, manage information, organize time, and locate resources are essential to this process.

The content standards for academic development guide the student to get the most out of each learning situation. The student experiences success and maximizes educational potential through effort and commitment to producing high quality work. Academic development includes desired learning goals that require the student to have a command of decision-making, problem-solving, goal-setting, critical thinking, logical reasoning, and interpersonal communication skills.

LEARNING TO WORK (Career Development)

The development of career standards is an integral part of an individual’s pursuit of success in the world of work. Being able to develop the knowledge and skills to make realistic career plans,
make a successful transition from school to work, achieve interdependence, and compete in a global economy are essential to this process.

The content standards for career development provide the foundation for the development of skills that assist students in making a successful transition from school to the world of work, and
from job-to-job, across the life career span.
