Post Primary CPD

Autumn 2021 - NCGE Post Primary Webinar Series

Following feedback from guidance counsellors, NCGE plan to host post-primary CPD events, which are currently webinar based, on the last working Tuesday of the month.

This approach has been taken to help with planning for both CPD and guidance counselling supervision.
On occasions, more than one webinar may be required, and, there may be a month without a webinar.
Further updates will be contained here and in regular NCGE Bulletins
