The Career Guidance Counsellor of Greensprings School, Lagos, Ms. Soluzo Ekenta, has advised parents to allow their children to choose careers based on individual passion and interest.

Ekenta, in a statement, argued that instead of forcing their children to study courses that are believed to be lucrative, parents should encourage them to study courses based on their strength and interest.

She said, “In Nigeria, it is believed that medical doctors, lawyers, and engineers are respected and well paid. Therefore, many parents try to make their children study courses related to these professions, even when their children are not interested in them.

“However, things have changed in recent time and career experts have started encouraging parents to allow their children to choose a profession, based on their strength and passion.

“There is nothing wrong with parents recommending that their children should study courses that can get them lucrative jobs. In the past, those courses include medicine, law and engineering. But many other unpopular courses also guarantee lucrative jobs and in our new information technology age, there are hundreds of new and lucrative IT-based jobs,” Ekenta said.

She added that the management of Greensprings School recently unveiled career, college and university readiness centres to prepare its pupils for life after secondary school.

“At Greensprings School, our goal is to give our pupils quality education that will build a solid foundation for whatever course they want to study at the university or college. We also guide them to choose courses based on their strength and passion.

“Toward the end of last year, we unveiled our career, college and university readiness centres and introduced a new software called Maia Learning. The software enables our secondary school pupils to take personality tests and the results are used to recommend courses that suit the personality of each pupil,” she said.
