Effectiveness of education policy for career education in primary and secondary schools.

Dr. Gulnaz Zahid has nearly ten years of experience in higher education in Pakistan. Her research interests revolve around higher education, internationalization, education policy, career education, and disability studies. She is voluntarily leading a research project with ITA to study the effectiveness of education policy for career education in primary and secondary schools. The purpose of the project is to explore how policy is currently supporting career guidance practice in schools in Asian countries, what the current status of career guidance is in primary and secondary schools, and to what extent it is found effective. Data for this study will be collected through the members and Ambassadors of ITA. A secondary review of data will be made. Findings will provide a comparative review of education policies and strategies that commonly influence the effectiveness of student outcomes in different contexts. Findings will be presented through the ITA website and will also be presented on various international forums.
At present, there is one collaborator on this project from Sri Lanka, Ms. Madhavinee Yatanwala. She is a teacher of English in the Government sector working for 7 years. She has received a diploma in Teaching and BA in English from the University of Sri Jayawardhanapura, Sri Lanka. She completed her postgraduate diploma in Education Management and Leadership in OTHM.
