ASSESSING THE GUIDANCE SERVICES AT WESLEY COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, KUMASI

ABSTRACT

This study was a descriptive survey designed to assess the guidance programme being offered in Wesley College of Education and suggest ways of improving it. The specific guidance services under study were Information and Counselling Services. The views of 200 students and the college counsellor were gathered by means of a self-designed questionnaire consisting of thirty Likerttype items. The data was then subjected to frequency and percentage analysis to answer the research questions formulated to guide the study. The results of the analysis indicated that the problems faced by the students of the college included financial, family problems, relating with colleagues and lack of counselling. The guidance programme also faced such problems as some students not knowing the counsellor; students not being informed about the services available in the college; the counsellor not keeping some discussions with students confidential; no counselling room; no fixed counselling schedule; the counsellor not working with other tutors and lack of administrative support. Based on the findings it was recommended that the college counsellor studied the needs of students so as to plan and implement relevant guidance programmes in the college. He could form a guidance and counselling committee to help him in his work and also update his knowledge and skills and put up good attitude in order to attract students for help. Administrative support could also help to make the counsellor’s work more effective.
