NCGE was established under the aegis of Léargas - The Exchange Bureau, a company limited by guarantee, in 1995, following the earlier establishment in Léargas of the Transnational Vocational Information and Guidance centre, under the EU’s Petra Programme.
In 2010 The Management of Guidance Committee (MGC) for NCGE was established as a sub-committee of the Board of Léargas, at which time the aims and objectives of NCGE were revised and the separate roles and responsibilities of the Board of Léargas and the MGC were further defined .
The Minister for Education nominates the members of the Management of Guidance Committee (MGC) of the NCGE, who are then appointed by the Board of Léargas.
To date, the MGC was appointed for each term of three years 2010-2013, 2013-2016 and 2017-2019.
Following the publication of the Indecon Report on the Review of Careers Information and Tools in 2019, the establishment of the Department for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science (D.FHERIS) in 2020, and national priorities due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Dept of Education determined that it was necessary to extend the term of office of the Chair and MGC to end 2022.
