What is Guidance Counselling ?
Guidance in post primary schools is a whole school activity that is integrated into all school programmes. Guidance in schools “refers to a range of learning experiences provided in developmental sequence, that assist students to develop self-management skills which will lead to effective choices and decisions about their lives. It encompasses the three but interlinked areas of personal and social development, educational guidance, and careers guidance.” (DES, 2005, p.4)
