Abstract The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 in India has brought about significant reforms aimed at transforming the educational landscape, particularly in the realm of vocational education. This paper provides an in-depth analysis of the impact of NEP 2020 on vocational education and the emerging roles of counsellors within this context. NEP 2020 emphasizes the integration of vocational education into mainstream curriculum from the secondary level onwards, aiming to equip students with practical skills and job-oriented training. This shift necessitates a revaluation of the role of counsellors, who are now tasked with guiding students towards diverse career paths and facilitating their transition into the workforce. Additionally, NEP 2020 underscores the importance of providing holistic support to students, including psychometric assessments, career guidance, and skill development. The paper examines the challenges and opportunities presented by NEP 2020 in implementing vocational education initiatives and highlights the crucial role of counsellors in supporting students' career aspirations and personal development. Furthermore, it discusses the need for counsellor training programs to adapt to the changing educational landscape and equip counsellors with the skills and knowledge required to effectively fulfil their emerging roles. Overall, this paper provides valuable insights into the transformative potential of NEP 2020 in shaping vocational education and the evolving responsibilities of counsellors in guiding students towards success in the dynamic job market of the 21st century.
