  KVFT – Activities for the year 2014

  Career Guidance for school leavers

Scan

FVFT organises three to four career guidance seminars each year for Students who leave school after standard 10 or 12.

After standard 10 students either drop out or do a short technical course. After standard 12 they can drop out or go on to a college or an university.

We invite educational professionals to guide these students as to what course may be most suitable depending on the subjects they have passed.
