Abstract: Higher Education Systems receive a lot of attention from the researchers on identifying good teaching practices in higher education to make it student attractive since it is the nearest point of education towards career and early life education is often ignored. But the primary factor in the choice of higher education in India is the current popularity of the stream (on the basis of the mass and media opinion) and not the aspiration and interest of the students. The lack of systematic student profiling to understand their strengths and encourage them in the correct career path is the major drawback of the Indian School Education System. This paper provides a framework for the steps to be followed to introduce life career planning education in schools and the various factors to be considered while profiling the students.
Keywords: Student Profiling, SWOT Analysis, School Education, Career and Life Planning.
