UCLA Extension, the continuing and professional education division of the University of California at Los Angeles, and Univariety, the largest college planning system for high schools in India, have announced the launch of Green Belt certification in Global Career Counselling (GCC), first of its kind in Asia.

Developed to address the increasing need for skilled student counsellors in schools, the GCC programme is a complete guide to career counselling, its techniques, recent practices and trends. The 40 hour, self-paced programme is targeted at teachers, aspiring teachers, career counsellors, psychology counsellors and all who are interested in taking up career counselling as a career option.

The competition among students seeking college admission has grown by leaps and bounds. Data from CBSE show that in the last 8 years there has been a 100% increase in the number of students graduating from 12th class and an unprecedented 700% hike in students getting 90% marks. Thus, with marks no more acting as the main criterion, academic stakeholders throughout the country are beginning to realise the benefit of trained career counsellors who can guide school students in their choice of career progression early on. However, currently in India, there are hardly 500 trained counsellors for over 1,50, 000 schools compared to 2,60, 000 counsellors for 1,80, 000 schools in the United States.

The partnership between UCLA Extension and Univariety ensures that the participants would get access to Case Studies, Articles and Webinars from global experts at UCLA Extension and other celebrated Universities, while benefiting from the practical exposure that Univariety offers due to their large school network in the country. The programme includes extensive training material on counselling from both the institutions and to earn the Green Belt Certification, one needs to complete modules offered by both Univariety and UCLA Extension.

In the course, participants will gain in depth knowledge of various key aspects of college counselling including how to conduct an effective counselling session, managing student and parent expectations and how to tackle potential challenges. Participants will also acquire the skills and talent needed to help students and their families choose the right College or University. This involves identifying critical selection factors such as rank, quality, cost and job placement record and choosing a technical or liberal arts college. Finally, this course will help uncover how to use and interpret psychometric tests and how to translate interests into a major and career.

Mr Jaideep Gupta, CEO and Founder, Univariety said,“With increasing competitiveness and a plethora of career choices, students today have to start planning their careers at school level. In a bid to help their children find the best options, parents are now turning to professional career counsellors who can guide their wards towards charting a career path early on in life. As educators in our country begin to realise the importance of the role played by counsellors, the Global Career Counselling course we have launched in association with UCLA Extension, will help counsellors improve their skills and add significant value to a student’s career decision making process.”

Speaking on this collaboration, Mr. Eric Latham, Director Postsecondary Programs, UCLA Extension said,“For almost a century UCLA Extension has been a leader in continuing education providing opportunities for people throughout the world to broaden their career and enrich their lives. Over the last 25 years, UCLA’s College Counselling Certificate programme has successfully trained thousands of high school teachers, counsellors and consultants to help young people and their families make the best decisions about college or university. We know that deciding on the right college or university can be challenging for students and their families. The application process can be confusing while the stakes are high. Making sound, informed choices is imperative to help students prepare for their future lives and careers. This is why we are excited about this new partnership with Univariety. We have developed this programme to help high school teachers, counsellors and administrators the foundational training needed to prepare students for this exciting and important decision.”

On completion of the course, one would be certified in Global Career Counselling by both Univariety & UCLA Extension. The Green Belt Certification in Global Career Counselling could help open multiple avenues to build a career for individuals aspiring to make a difference through a career in career counselling.
