This study established the status of the Zimbabwean school guidance and counselling (SGC) services planning by ascertaining school counsellors' and learners' perspectives in three educational regions. A comparison with other countries was made by using international literature. A descriptive survey design was used in the empirical research. Nine hundred and fifty (n = 950) respondents participated in the study. A questionnaire was used to collect the data. The SAS/STAT version 9.1 was used to analyse the data. Chi-square tests were computed. Ratios were calculated to establish the relative rating of each item. The study revealed that according to the school counsellors' and learners' perspectives, planning for SGC services was seldom done. Where planning was done, parents, learners and the psychological team of the district were seldom involved. Recommendations for improving the SGC services planning in Zimbabwe are made.
