Abstract: 

The objective of this study is to analyze the education system of Papua New Guinea regarding the state of career guidance and counseling in the school system through a critical analysis of educational reform documents and perceptions of teachers, students and parents. The rationale is to offer recommendation for improvement where there seems to be a challenge. The study used a mixed of empirical and qualitative research method. This approach enabled the researchers to widely scrutinize different education policy documents and apply a semi-structured interview guide and semi-structure questionnaire for 22 respondents (teachers, students and parents) respectively. Specific results from the study revealed the absence of a policy framework for career guidance and counseling in the school system of Papua New Guinea. Therefore, the paper recommends the promulgation of a comprehensive policy for career and guidance counseling in the school system with compulsory directive for implementation.
