Guidance and Counselling Service at Clonakilty Community College

A guidance and counselling service is available at Clonakilty Community College for all students from 1st year to FETAC Level 5 (PLC) level. All students have access to individual meetings with the Guidance Counsellor for career and educational guidance as well as personal counselling. Classroom guidance is offered across all years, delivered to class groups weekly.

Guidance is a term, which covers a variety of services aimed at personal, educational and career development. In fact, guidance can be described as the full range of interventions which assist pupils to make choices about their lives. The Guidance Programme can help to address and support the needs of the students in three distinct yet interlinked areas:

  • Personal/Social
  • Educational
  • Career

Personal/Social Guidance

This refers to the services such as counselling and activities that promote interpersonal communication skills, decision-making, self-awareness and the ability to plan. This is part of the pastoral care within the college and in operated in conjunction with Deirdre Collins, our Chaplain.

Educational Guidance

This strand aims to assist students in decision making in relation to course, subject and level in post-primary school through services such as counselling and activities. Study skills and examination technique, as well as senior cycle subject choice are also part of this category.

Career Guidance

Again through the service of counselling and activities, this aspect of the role looks to assist students in decision-making related to choices of education and training courses, employment opportunities, job search skills, work and other life roles.

Role of the Guidance Counsellor

The Guidance Counsellor therefore has the acquired training to be able to absorb information about pupils from a wide range of sources in an effort to facilitate and support their development across the three specific areas; Personal/Social Guidance, Educational Guidance and Career Guidance.
