Abstract

The study investigated the Perceptions on the role of guidance and counselling programme on Kenyan secondary school students’ career decision making. The study adopted descriptive survey design and the sample size comprised 250 students in the district selected using stratified sampling technique and six guidance and counselling teachers also randomly selected for the study. The researcher used questionnaires and interviews to elicit information from students and interview schedules to collect data from counselling teachers and principals. The results indicated that, there was a significant relationship between role of guidance and counselling for both form one/two (X2=1.440, df=2, P=.001<.05) and form three and four (X2=3.263, df=2, P=.001<.05). It was revealed by the analysis that students agreed that academic, personal and social competence were roles played by guidance and counselling in schools. Similarly, guidance and counselling helped them to attain spiritual growth, vocational, health and marital awareness. Therefore, the implication is that career counselling should be inherently practiced to provide the students with indispensable information and competence required in the world of work.
