An assessment on the relationship between individuals counselling services and students’ academic performance in Nandi South Sub-county, Kenya
Much has been reported about guidance and counselling in schools in Kenya. However, despite the presence of guidance counselling services in secondary schools, there is still poor performance amongst the students. The purpose of this study was to undertake an assessment on the relationship between individuals counselling services and Students’ Academic Performance in Nandi South Sub-County, Nandi County, Kenya. Questionnaires, interview schedules and document analysis were the methods used to collect data. Method of analysis included descriptive statistics involving measures of central tendencies and inferential statistics such as Pearson Correlation Coefficient and regression analysis. Data presentation was in form of tables, pie charts and bar graphs. The findings of this study revealed that there was a significant positive relationship between individual counselling services and students’ academic performance in Nandi South Sub-County. The study therefore recommended various stakeholders in the education ministry including the principals, Teachers Service Commission and Department of Basic Education to ensure privacy in the provision of guidance and counselling in secondary schools and establish departments that are in charge of guidance and counselling.
