UCLA Extension, the continuing and professional education division of the University of California at Los Angeles, and Univariety, the largest college planning system for high schools in India, have announced the launch of Green Belt certification in Global Career Counselling (GCC), first of its kind in Asia.

Developed to address the increasing need for skilled student counsellors in schools, the GCC programme is a complete guide to career counselling, its techniques, recent practices and trends. The 40 hour, self-paced programme is targeted at teachers, aspiring teachers, career counsellors, psychology counsellors and all who are interested in taking up career counselling as a career option.

The partnership between UCLA Extension and Univariety ensures that the participants would get access to Case Studies, Articles and Webinars from global experts at UCLA Extension and other celebrated Universities, while benefiting from the practical exposure that Univariety offers due to their large school network in the country. The programme includes extensive training material on counselling from both the institutions and to earn the Green Belt Certification, one needs to complete modules offered by both Univariety and UCLA Extension.

In the course, participants will gain in depth knowledge of various key aspects of college counselling including how to conduct an effective counselling session, managing student and parent expectations and how to tackle potential challenges. Participants will also acquire the skills and talent needed to help students and their families choose the right College or University. This involves identifying critical selection factors such as rank, quality, cost and job placement record and choosing a technical or liberal arts college. Finally, this course will help uncover how to use and interpret psychometric tests and how to translate interests into a major and career.
