The Stimulation Of Career Interests In African Secondary Schools Through Extramural Activities
MetadataShow full item record
The literature from Western societies indicates that career interests arise out of early satisfying experiences and two small studies in Rhodesia point to the same process operating with Africans. It is suggested in this paper that because of the paucity of opportunities for career-related experiences for rural African youths' schools should extend their extramural programme to include more creative/productive type activities which have wide career correlates. Three such activities are analyzed here to indicate possible relationships with jobs. A list of approximate percentages of Rhodesian schoolchildren participating in extramural activities is appended.
