This white paper shares insights from the Kuder® Career Needs Assessment™, which was administered to the following stakeholder groups in a developing country in Africa: secondary school students, parents, teachers, school administrators, and community partners.
In June of 2014, personnel from Kuder, Inc. (and its wholly owned subsidiary, Kuder Visions Unlimited, LLC) administered the Kuder® Career Needs Assessment™ to four groups of stakeholders in a developing country in Africa. The purposes of the needs assessments were twofold: (1) to build a career planning system that directly addresses students’ educational and career development needs, and (2) to serve as baseline data for evaluating the effectiveness of the career planning system. Needs assessments were administered to secondary school students, their parents, their teachers and school administrators, and community partners (local leaders, employers, etc.).
