E Nyarko – Sampson


The study appraised the guidance and counselling services in Colleges of Education in Ghana. Four research questions were posed to direct the study. The evaluation research design was used whilst a multi – stage sampling procedure was employed to select a sample of 185 students. A
40–item questionnaire with reliability co-efficient of .68 was used to collect the data, and frequencies and percentages were used to analyze the data collected. The conclusion was that students’ patronage is on the average. Again, students’ needs that are most met by guidance and counselling programmes are academic and relationship needs whilst the need least met is placement. It is recommended that counsellors should be provided with counselling offices. Other forms of guidance activities including seminars, durbars, and excursions should be given due attention on the school guidance calendar.
