The National Centre for Guidance in Education (NCGE) will cease to operate from 1st September 2022. 
The NCGE and its Management Committee, Léargas, the Department of Education, the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Solas and ETBI have been carrying out significant work since earlier this year to prepare for the reorganisation of guidance support. A Transitions Working Group and additional sub-groups have been meeting regularly to co-ordinate the reorganisation.

This resource gives Guidance Counsellors ideas for how to ‘transition back’ and ‘settle in’ to school for academic year 2021-2022. This resource is not intended to be prescriptive; it aims to provide a starting point for discussions and points of action, in line with recent publications.

This checklist resource includes some key points / areas of consideration for Guidance Counsellors on the following seven elements of practice:

  1. Checking-in with where I ‘left off’
  2. General reflections / points of action for this academic year
  3. Update myself on National policy / publications
  4. Reflecting on Local School Policy
  5. Reflecting on Local Structures / Teams
  6. Updating Local Supports
  7. Reflect on Student Needs in our school
