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.

'Settling in - Slow down to Catch up'

This resource has been designed to support Guidance Counsellors as they transition into a new position or into a new school.

It may be particularly helpful for:

  • Guidance counsellors who have been newly employed in a post primary school
  • Guidance Counsellors who are newly or recently qualified

In addition, it is a resource that will support general Guidance Practice in post-primary schools as we begin an academic year defined by the uncertainty that accompanies the Covid19 pandemic.Time spent on settling in and planning will yield the best outcomes. This resource will support Guidance Counsellors in their reflection, planning and in their initial conversations with school management.
