Abstract

Because little documented information was available to Newfoundland educators on the nature of the career guidance services offered in high schools throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, this study was undertaken to determine the types of career guidance services offered in senior high schools within the St. John's Roman Catholic School District and the Avalon Consolidated School District in St. John's, the response of the grade eleven students enrolled in schools in these districts to the career guidance services available in their respective high schools, and the impact these services had on the students' career decision-making. -- Data were collected by means of a "Counselor's Check List" designed to obtain information on the types of career guidance services offered in the senior high schools and a "Student's Questionnaire" designed to determine grade eleven students' response to the career guidance services available in their respective high schools. Approximately sixteen percent of the male and female grade eleven population in each of the schools studied completed this questionnaire. -- Analysis of this data indicated that all of the schools studied, with the exception of one, offered a fairly large variety of opportunities designed to facilitate vocational development. Grade eleven students made, during high school, fairly extensive use of the career guidance services available in their schools. The results of this study suggest that the career guidance programs operating in high schools in St. John's had an impact on students' career decision-making.
