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.

Resource List:
This provides a base template for a detailed list of supports which post-primary Guidance Counsellors / Students may access. 
This list seeks to enhance the work of the Guidance Counsellor as it outlines multiple local and national agencies which specialise in the variety of complex issues experienced by students. Key school supports and international supports are also included. This list may be appended to the Whole School Guidance Plan and/or may be a 'stand alone' document for consultation. This list was revised in October 2021 to include National Disability Supports.
