Although there are many careers and opportunities available to individuals, without guidance and the appropriate counseling, future career choice decisions can be limited in their career options. This may be so if they are especially unprepared for the requirements of the workplace, and are unaware of workplace accommodations that can broaden career options or if they underestimate their abilities. According to Fitzjkenny (2005), Career education and guidance in schools provides access to the skills and resources students need to overcome these obstacles, and prepares them to make choices relevant to their strengths and interests. The foundations of career management skills should be laid at an early age and as students move from primary to high or secondary schools, there should be a general idea of what they want to do and should be further equipped in high schools with the relevant self management skills such as, problem solving, career planning, decision making, time management, learning and information management, in preparation for their future careers. Of concern also to note is that within general education pathways, substantial career guidance and counseling time is spent preparing students to choose and compete for tertiary education places. This may result in those not intending to enter tertiary education receiving little or no help.
