NATIONAL FORUM ON GUIDANCE 2015

The DES and NCGE Management of Guidance Committee have approved the continuation of the National Forum on Guidance for 2015.

The first 2015 meeting of the National Forum on Guidance was held on Friday, May 8th in Clock Tower, DES, Marlborough Street, Dublin 1. Please click on the link to see the Agenda.

The focus of this meeting continued the theme of Lifelong Guidance – Building the Evidence Base, with specific emphasis on the Voice of the User/Citizen. NCGE was delighted to welcome speakers from “Young Voices” – a  group facilitated by DCYA and NYCI who provided us with the “Voice of the User”.


NATIONAL FORUM ON GUIDANCE 2013/2014

The DES and NCGE Management of Guidance Committee approved the continuation of the National Forum on Guidance for these two years, to coincide with our membership of the ELGPN.

NCGE, as designated representative for Ireland, continued with full ELGPN membership and became members of the Steering Group for the 2013/14 Work Programme.
As Ireland hosted the EU Presidency for January to June 2013, NCGE  became Chair of the Steering Group for these six months.
Following the final meeting of the National Forum on Guidance 2011/12, held on the 16th of October 2012 and based on the evaluation and comments from members at the meeting,  NCGE proposed to the Department that the Forum would continue in the following format:

    Four meetings – two in 2013 and two in 2014
    Organisations were invited to participate in wider discussions at the forum meeting
    A nominated representative and sub from each organisation was invited to form the subgroup to ensure structured planning and appropriate representation from all concerned.

NCGE invited members of the Forum to participate in a programme to test the ELGPN Lifelong Guidance Policy Development: A European Resource Kit.


The First Meeting of the National Forum on Guidance 2013/14  was held on Friday March 1st, 2013 at the National Conference on Guidance where Minister Ruairí Quinn formally launched the testing of the European Resource Kit.
