Guidance Related Learning Resources - Junior Cycle

NCGE and are delighted to announce that a suite of innovative and integrated Junior Cycle Guidance Related Learning and teaching resources are NOW available.

  • This content provides three units of learning: a unit for first year, second year and third year (six classes for each year group)

  • Each unit of learning has six lessons.

  • Each lesson includes a lesson plan, presentation and student worksheet and are available in English and Irish.

These new resources have been developed in response to the needs expressed by Guidance Counsellors working in post-primary school. 
The content and structure of these resources has been strongly influenced by stakeholder voice through student and Guidance Counsellor focus groups and engagement on the topic.

Class content includes a focus on 'developing myself,' 'developing my learning' and 'developing my career path' in line with the Whole School Guidance Framework (NCGE, 2017).

Topics presented in the units of learning include (but are not limited to):

  • My School Year
  • My Supports
  • My Goals
  • My Values
  • My Study Skills 
  • My Pathways

You can access these resources directly below. An additional 'Guide to Accessing and Using the Resources' is also provided.
There are 3 x units, one for each Year, contained in individual 'Zip' files. Each file contains 2 x separate folders for the English and Irish content.
Within each language format the resources for the 6 x lessons are provided in separate folders.
