Career Education, Research & Training Council is an apex organisation set up under section 8 of MCA,Government of India for making policies and planning at the national level to bridge the gap between
degrees and career competencies. The Council has developed authentic, appropriate and effective career
development tools and learning management systems to cultivate a culture of “career by choice, not
by chance”. We are embedding career in education.
We began to reinvent career education from the ground level;
starting with few assumptions: that the career decision-making services
available to students at school/college are virtually non-existent and pathetically ineffective.
Perhaps approx. 94% of us are in the wrong career or under-employed. This includes people who have failed to find
a suitable career and others who are in the job that only partially fits their talents, interests and working
preferences. This is an unrecognised national disgrace to a country like India.
We have developed career decision-making programs for in-depth assessment of a person’s natural abilities,
aptitudes and work attitudes, which are very helpful in guiding people from the morass of uncertainty to the
best possible career selections. Our career management programs enable people to have the most successful,
productive and fulfilling lives possible.
We propagate the philosophy of “Be what you want to be”. We strive to help students and adults find their
passions in life and lead them to their dream career. We encourage young people to think deeply about the
things they enjoy most and then translate these into careers that will drive and motivate them for the rest
of their lives. We provide the tools to design,monitor and develop their career which is self-engaging,
authentic, impartial, measurable and transparent.
Our activities take place on an individual basis either face-to-face or distance mode.
These include career planning techniques, self-assessment tools, organising studies, work search
and transition services. Our holistic view of the career sector enables us to develop resources
improving the quality of the career decision-making process which opens the doors of success.
We are practical, idealists and confident that our career guidance programs are the best in the world.
A strong commitment to research and improvement ensures that we stay the best.
“40 minutes of career planning prevents 40 years of struggle in life”
