Abstract

The main purpose of this study was to investigate guidance and counselling services in Junior Secondary Schools in Idemili South Local Government Area. A descriptive survey design was adopted. Four research questions guided the study. A 3-3 item structured questionnaire was designed and adopted for the study. Mean and standard deviation were used to analyze the data collected. The conclusion was that certain factors militate against the effective rendering of guidance and counselling services, which are lack of fund, large room for group counselling and counsellors separate room, research test materials and psychological test materials. It was recommended that seminars, field trips and excursion should be incorporated into academic curriculum, so that it will help to expose students to real working environment while still undergoing academic training.
