Post Primary CPD

Autumn 2020 - NCGE Post Primary Webinar Series

During the summer of 2020, the Department of Education outlined a plan for supporting the well-being of school communities on the return to school. To streamline support for school communities the Department of Education, through its Wellbeing Implementation Group, proposes a 3-phase approach to wellbeing in schools in 2020/21. Below is a link to a suite of webinars that the NCGE is delivering regarding phase 1 of returning to school. This phase is concerned with ‘re-entry’ and ‘settling in’.

A wide range of topics on the provision of Guidance in post-primary schools during the academic year 2020/21 are addressed and a large number of pragmatic resources will be introduced and explained within each webinar to support practice around each topic.

This programme was developed in line with feedback and information provided by Guidance Counsellors and School Management in a 
survey distributed at the end of academic year 2019/20
