(Covid-19) NCGE Support information for Guidance Counsellors in Schools​

Following the closure of schools and further education settings, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, NCGE has developed the following information for school Guidance Counsellors to support the delivery of remote / online guidance.

Local decisions about the nature and suitability of remote / online school guidance provision should be discussed and agreed by School Management and Guidance Counsellor(s) and documented accordingly.

School management and Guidance Counsellors have autonomy and may plan for and schedule guidance classes and one-to-one meetings with students using remote / online platforms in line with school policy.

To provide clarity and to support post-primary school management and Guidance Counsellors in their planning and provision of one-to-one or small group guidance counselling and guidance classes to students during the Covid-19 school closures the following information may be useful.
