(Covid-19) 'Dear Me' in August 2020

This resource was designed for use on the last day of the academic year!
It aims to serve as a reference list for the types of things Guidance Counsellors might have on their mind, immediately before closing the office door and leaving for the summer holidays. In using a tool such as this (which is an example), Guidance Counsellors can make a note of all the major and minor ‘to-dos’ that will help them get started upon return to the role at the start of the next academic year. In this way, Guidance Counsellors can truly ‘let go,’ rest and relax over the break, knowing that a reminder note awaits them upon their return.

(Covid-19) "Review of Academic Year" (Reflection Resource for Staff)

This resource has been developed by NCGE, in consultation with the DES, to support Guidance Counsellors in reflecting on all aspects of Guidance for the academic year 2019/2020.
Due to Covid19, this academic year involved the provision of ‘remote’ Guidance over a period of approximately eight weeks for the first time in the history of the Irish education system. This ‘Review of Academic Year’ resource supports Guidance Counsellors (and the Guidance Planning Team), in reviewing all aspects of the Guidance Service with reference to Whole School Guidance and the Continuum of Guidance (per Whole School Guidance Framework Document, 2017). This resource aims to support reflection on all aspects of Guidance provision and serve as a reference document for future planning.
