It is both a moral and economic imperative to ensure every young person is equipped with the knowledge, skills and qualifications to give them the best chance of success in adult life in the 21st century. Careers Education and Guidance helps students develop the skills and confidence to make realistic and informed decisions about their futures, for themselves, and to manage the transitions from one stage of their education, training and work to the next. Careers Education and Guidance can effectively help young people to succeed when it is coherent, consistent and supports progression and continuity.


Continuing education and career planning guidance


The Morrisby Profile has established itself as one of the best and most useful psychometric tests for those wishing to decide on a career or higher education path. It is a series of tests assessing a student’s logic, verbal, non verbal and numerical reasoning, spatial awareness and mechanical aptitude. It also examines personality including awareness, flexibility, commitment, leadership and initiative.

 

It is important that students and their families are in discussion about their options including higher education and/or their employment plans.  The Personal Profile and Guidance Report  provided by The Morrisby Organisation and guidance interview following the assessment will considerably enhance that discussion and application.  

 

The tests are administered in a formal manner, but they are not examinations. They take about three and a half hours, including a short break.  Although it sounds intense, students generally find the process interesting and fun. All necessary resources are provided by  David Ritchie & Associates Ltd.
