Welcome to Deele College Guidance Counselling Service

Guidance refers to a range of learning experiences provided in a developmental sequence, designed to assist students to make choices about their lives and to make transitions consequent on these choices.

These choices may be categorised into three seperate but interlinked areas:
  • Personal and Social
  • Educational and Career
  • Counselling
Counselling empowers the students to make decisions, solve problems, change behaviours and resolve issues in their lives. Sometimes in Deele College this may be personal counselling, educational counselling, career counselling or it may involve combinations of each.

Counselling is a key part of the school guidance key programme offered on an individual or group basis as part of a developmental learning process and at moments of personal crisis. The guidance consellor provides support also to parents, teachers and the school management in assisting the personal and social, career and educational development of the students.

Career guidance and counselling is viewed in Deele College as a process – not an event – which begins on the student’s entry in first year and continues right through the five or six years spent in the school. Very often a number of past students who are perhaps experiencing some difficulty in third level education or are seeking help in securing or changing employment contact the school for assistance and advice.

Our Guidance Counsellors , Mrs G. Brady and Ms. F. Friel are available to students. Elements of the School Programme are as follows:
  • Career / Educational and Personal Guidance Counselling
  • Help for students to realise the implications of their choices and the importance of education and planning / options / opportunities
  • Carrying out some career aptitude / interest testing
  • Guiding Students through the application procedures for Further and Higher Education (CAO, UCAS, PLC Courses etc.)
  • Organising College / Career Fair visits for Students and arranges presentations from College speakers

Parents are welcome to contact the Guidance Counsellor by phoning the School.
