Dear Student,

We welcome you to our academic programme, Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and
Counselling (PGDGC) through Distance Mode. The course aims to train personnel as counsellors
or teacher counsellors to guide and counsel students in school and other related settings.
Since the need for qualified counsellors has been felt acutely in India in recent times as growing
competitions in day to day life, hassle at work place, requirements of family life, social
complexities etc. have given birth to various physiological as well as psychological problems.
Distinct kinds of mental and physical problems are found in different segments of society. Day to
day life problems, social tensions have made lives more difficult and miserable. Different
psychosocial, socio-economic and emotional problems prevailing in the society and related issues
need to be tackled with technical expertise. Problem of adjustment, mental disturbances like
depression, over anxiety etc. are prominent among the masses having wider spectrum require
urgent intervention, which not only necessitate emotional and social support but amicable
management to resolve them permanently. Tensions and pressure of life are not confined to
working people and professionals only but have also percolated down to school going children,
household wives and many others. Students in schools suffer from behavioural and adjustment
problems besides learning disorders. Like wise the needs of physically disabled persons, as well as
of those afflicted with debilitating diseases and the victims of trauma, sufferers of terrorism etc. are
the instances of special populations for whom trained and qualified counselors are badly needed.
The remedial answer to such problems lies in the field of counselling psychology which is not only
an important branch of psychology but, in fact, deals with the application of psychological
principles as well as therapeutic techniques in combination. It adopts a reflective approach
combining understanding both from formal psychological enquiry as well as from the interpersonal
relationship between the counsellor and client. Guidance and counselling is considered an integral
part of total educational process as it helps in achieving educational objectives for overall
development of children and youth. Guidance and Counselling services in schools have gained
significance as these aims at total development of the individual in all aspects of life, i.e.
intellectual, personal-social, educational and career. Guidance and Counselling, both as an
approach and as a service can only be followed and practiced by personnel adequately trained in its
theory and practice.
This Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and counselling (PGDGC) through distance mode
is different from the full time /formal programmes. Here the teaching and learning takes place
through the instructional (print) material at the programme centre allotted to you. Besides this,
counselling sessions and practical work/activites are also organized to facilitate the development of
skills that would help manage effectively the teaching learning process. In addition to this, you will
have to submit your assignments at your specified programme centre. Feedback on assignments
will also be provided to you. The information provided in this booklet will help you to organize and
systematize your study related to various components of the programme.
We hope you will find the programme interesting and useful. We also wish you success in
completing the course and hope that you are able to use the knowledge & skill developed through
this programme at your workplace.

With best wishes

1 GENERAL INFORMATION

1.1 Jamia Millia Islamia


Jamia Millia Islamia was founded at Aligarh in 1920 during the Khilafat and Non - Cooperation
Movement in response to Gandhiji's call to boycott government supported educational institutions.
Among those who enthusiastically responded to this call were Shaikhul Hind Maulana Mahmudul
Hasan, Maulana Mohammed Ali, Hakim Ajmal Khan, Dr. Mukhtar Ahmad Ansari and Abdul
Majeed Khwaja. These eminent personalities, along with some others, founded the Jamia Millia
Islamia. They nurtured it through the changing vicissitudes of history at great personal risk and
inconvenience.

The Jamia moved from Aligarh to Delhi in 1925. Since then, it has been continuously growing,
always refurbishing its methods, and branching out from time to time to meet new needs. True to
the ideals of its founders, it has, over the years, tried to integrate the physical and mental
development of its students.

The Jamia was made a Central University by an Act of Parliament on 26 th December, 1988 vide
Jamia Millia Islamia Act 1988 (No: 59) The Degrees / Diplomas / Certificates awarded by Jamia
Millia Islamia, are recognized by all the members of the Association of Indian Universities (AIU)
and are at par with Degrees / Diplomas and Certificates of all the Indian Universities, Deemed
Universities and other Institutions.

Jamia reflects the original concern of its founders, which was to encourage the indigenous roots of
education. It has cherished and has continued to encourage a critical appreciation of the country’s
history and culture and also the history of Islam with its rich cultural and intellectual traditions. It
seeks to foster a national and cosmopolitan perspective in its academic programmes as well as in
co-curricular activities.

The objectives of Jamia are to disseminate advanced knowledge and provide instruction, research
and extension facilities in various branches of learning. The University endeavors to provide the
students and teachers with the necessary atmosphere and facilities for the promotion of studies in

3. INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEM

The Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and Counselling (PGDGC) includes the multi-media
approach i.e., Self-learning Print Material, Counselling Sessions, Assignments and Project Work
Activities. The project work activities will be carried out in the schools or guidance agencies under
partial supervision while the counselling session will be held at the programme centres.
3.1 Print Material
The print materials are the self-learning materials for both theory and project work of the
programme. The theory courses are supplied to the students in the form of Blocks. Each
block contains 2-4 units. Each course has its own code number.
3.2 Audio and Video Programmes
The Audio and Video programmes are meant for further clarification and enhancement of
understanding. These are used during counselling and workshop sessions at programme
centres.

3.3 Counselling Sessions


Generally the counselling sessions will be held at the programme centres on weekends or at
the time appointed by the Study/Programme Centres, within the general schedule of the
programme. The Coordinator/Programme Incharge at the programme center will decide on
the coverage of these sessions. The Programme Centre Coordinator/Programme Incharge
will also provide the counselling schedule. The counselling sessions will include
clarifications required in the print-material and the solution of problems through active
interaction with students.
The counselling sessions are organized for all the theory courses. The counselling time for
each theory course will consist of 16 hours (8 sessions of 2 hours each). Thus each
student will attend 80 hours of contact counselling sessions for all the five theory
courses. The schedule of the sessions will be flexible and will concentrate on more relevant
and important issues or topics. The students will be provided with a copy of schedule in
advance so that they come prepared for discussions during counselling sessions. Attending
the counselling sessions is optional but is always in the interest of learners to attend these
sessions.
3.4 Assignments
Assignments are an integral and compulsory component of the instructional system. About
30% of the marks are allotted to the assignments in each theory course. There are two
assignments in each course. Each assignment is of 15 marks for theory courses of 100
marks. It is expected that the two assignments in each course (i.e.10 assignments for five
theory courses) should be submitted to the Programme Incharge after the counselling of a
particular course is over.

5
Whenever you receive a set of material and assignments, check them immediately and ask
for missing pages/books/assignments, if any, and contact the coordinator of your
Programme Centre. The assignments are designed in such a way as to help you concentrate
mainly on the printed course material. However if you have easy access to other books, you
may make use of them. The assignments will be returned to you by the
evaluators/counsellors with their comments and marks. The comments will guide you in
your study and help you in improving your performance. The assignments will be changed
every year, so that any candidate submitting previous years’ assignments does not give a
copied version of a successful student’s assignments.

All the assignments related to the course / courses you are going to appear in the Term-end-
examination must be submitted by the prescribed date in accordance with the Academic
Calendar, which will be provided to you by your Programme Centre. The Arjun Singh
Centre for Distance and Open Learning / Coordinator of the Programme Centre has
the right not to accept the assignments submitted after the due date. You are therefore
advised to submit the assignments before or on the due date. Late fees of Rs. 50/- per
Assignment up to maximum period of 4 weeks from the last date will be charged on
not submitting the assignment on the due date.
For your own record, retain a copy of all the assignment responses, which you submit to the
coordinator and also maintain an account of the corrected assignment responses received by
you after the evaluation. If you do not get passing marks in any assignment, you have to
submit it again. However, once you get the pass marks in an assignment, you cannot re-
submit it for improvement of marks. Assignments are not subject to re-evaluation except for
factual errors, if any committed by the evaluator. The discrepancy noticed by you in the
evaluated assignments should be brought to the notice of the Coordinator of the Programme
Centre so that the required correction can be made.
Important points to note:
The following points should be kept in mind while preparing the assignments:
• Write your Roll Number correctly and don’t overwrite particularly while you write your
Roll Number, Name and Assignment Number.
• Make the answer concise and systematic. Always try to avoid irrelevant details and focus on
the question and its various aspects.
• Take care of the word limit wherever specified in the assignments. At the same time make
the descriptions adequate and not too short. The word limit is set to sharpen the focus of the
response and not to restrict your expression.
• You have to write your answers in your own handwriting. If you feel that your handwriting
is not legible, you may send typed responses but not printed or computerized.
• Orientation to the assignments will be provided in the counselling sessions. You have to
submit the assignment-responses to the Programme Centre you are attached to on or before
the last date of submission mentioned in the Academic Calendar provided by the
Programme Incharge.
• Before you write to us to answer your queries, do read this Programme Guide carefully. We
may already have answered your query/queries. Do follow our instructions carefully.
• Do not enclose letter about your doubts for clarification, if any, along with the responses.
Send them separately giving your roll number, name and address, the title of the course, the
number of the unit or the assignment. In case you want to draw our attention to something
of urgent/important nature, send it in a separate envelope.
• Do not get admitted to more than one Programme of the University simultaneously. The
University Regulations do not allow it.

6
• Once you get pass marks in an Assignment you can not re-submit or do that for
improvement of marks.
• If you could not submit your assignment responses of any year or failed in this component
and you wish to attempt this component in the next year then you must take up the
assignments of that year.
• You should obtain a receipt while submitting the assignments.
