SCHOOL COUNSELING RETAINER-SHIP PROGRAM (SCOREP)
Every institution of learning that wants to create and maintain a culture of excellence must pay quality attention to emotional and psychological needs of students and staff members in order to prevent various factors that can hinder excellence in an academic environment through the work of a professional counselor. However, students in their teenage years find it difficult to open up about their personal challenges to familiar faces such as teachers and even the school counselor. A success-focused school therefore needs to be more creative with the provision of therapeutic help. Also, our research has proven that the success of any organization depends on the wellbeing of its workforce. Each member of staff has various day-to-day life issues to battle with and desperately needs help and improvement because if these issues are not properly dealt with, they may impact the level of proficiency. However, most of them will not unbutton on their personal issues in front of the fully employed school counselor who they considered a colleague. 100% confidentiality must be guaranteed before you can get them open up. This is exactly what SCOREP offers you. Resolving conflicting emotional and psychological issues for improved academic excellence in the citadels of learning, is the sole responsibility of a well-trained counselor. This is why institutions who keyed into SCOREP have the best of results. Our experience with schools of high and international standards has enabled us to take a pragmatic approach in this program which has proven to be effective and beneficial. We will help you to avoid the pitfalls of emotionally disturbed students and stressed workforce.
