Mpelembe Secondary School is proud of a well-organised Careers Section. The main aim of the section is to help pupils and students make informed decisions about which career they would like to pursue after leaving school.
The careers committee is run by teachers who are also keen in counselling and guidance and offer pupils social, spiritual, intellectual and emotional support. Speakers from different colleges and universities both in Zambia and abroad, especially USA, Canada, Britain and Australia have come to Mpelembe to give talks on their programmes and scholarships. The section is also involved in skills talks.
