Reconnecting with Education - Guidance for post-primary schools for students at risk of early school leaving
This Department document aims to support schools in encouraging students to return to school to complete their education, and/or to outline options such as alternative pathways to further education or employment.
The role of the Guidance Counsellor in preventing early school leaving within the whole school approach, and appropriately supporting students’ access to Further Education and Training is clearly outlined.
It is important for school Guidance Counsellors to establish links with their local ETB Adult Educational Guidance Services to facilitate consideration of these alternative education and training options when appropriate.
