If learners are to make a responsible and accountable choice at school of a field of study and occupation, it is imperative that they receive intensive guidance in this regard at school. Appropriate guidance on educational and occupational matters, and orientation of learners with respect to their individual potentials, will enable learners to choose fields of study at school that will correspond to wider occupational fields and that will serve as a meaningful introduction for a reasonable future choice of an occupation. Thus it was the purpose of this study to determine the current knowledge and perceptions of school guidance counsellors (SGC) with respect to the chiropractic profession in South Africa. This study has thus established a knowledge base to facilitate greater understanding and co-operation between school guidance counsellors (SGC) and chiropractors regarding the referral of learners, who may be interested in a profession in the alternative health care industry, to join the chiropractic field as a learner with the intent to become a practitioner.
