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

NCGE schedule of CPD for Phase 1 of Department Plan - Supporting the Wellbeing of School Communities on the Return to School
Eighteen lessons of Guidance Related Learning for Junior Cycle students have been developed. Each lesson contains a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation, a detailed lesson plan and student worksheet. These lessons are suitable for use both in the classroom and if students are learning remotely. This webinar introduced all aspects of these newly developed resources for Junior Cycle Guidance.
This webinar aimed to reassure Guidance Counsellors that they can be confident in their provision of digital guidance. The practice of providing Guidance online or over the phone was discussed in a practical way, with links to pedagogy and Guidance training.
This webinar supported Guidance Counsellors who are recently qualified and who will begin to work in post-primary schools in their new role in September 2020.
