Who manages NCGE

NCGE was established under the aegis of Léargas - The Exchange Bureau, a company limited by guarantee, in 1995, following the earlier establishment in Léargas of the Transnational Vocational Information and Guidance centre, under the EU’s Petra Programme. An NCGE Management Committee was appointed at that time by the Minister for Education for an initial three year period.  In 2010, the Management of Guidance Committee for NCGE was re-established as a sub-committee of the Board of Léargas.  The aims and objectives of NCGE were updated and the separate roles and responsibilities of the Board of Léargas and the Management of Guidance Committee have been clarified. The Minister of Education and Skills nominates the members of the Committee, who are then appointed by the Board of Leargas. The Management of Guidance Committee meet five to six times a year. 

The terms of reference of the Management of Guidance Committee are available here.

A new management of Guidance Committee was appointed in September 2013.

NCGE has published its Strategic Plan for 2015-2017 having surveyed the views and ideas of our stakeholders to inform the planning process.

NCGE commissioned Prospectus Management Consultants to carry out this consultation. Stakeholders were invited to provide their comments and responses directly to Prospectus via Survey Monkey.

We would like to thank those who completed the survey - a report of the responses is included within, as an appendix.
