GUIDANCE AND COUNSELLING DEPARTMENT

 Ms. Grainne Reilly and Mr. Cormac O'Brien

Ratoath College provides two guidance counsellors who offer a complete and confidential service to our students.

Guidance refers to a range of learning experiences provided in a developmental sequence, delivered to assist students to make choices about their lives and to make informed transitions built on these choices.  The choices may be categorised into three separate but interlinked areas: 

Our counsellors support the emotional, educational and social wellbeing of students in the following ways:

 

  • Personal and Social - empowering students to make decisions, solve problems, change behaviours and resolve issues in their lives, through - (a) individual counselling, (b) group counselling, (c) referral to a counsellor or other outside agency.
  • Educational -      recognising students' different learning abilities and their inherent talents.  Each student is encouraged to optimise their learning skills.  This involves - (a) helping students with choices with      subjects, courses and levels, (b) aiding motivation and management learning, (c) demonstrating how to access and utilise available online      resources
  • Career and Vocational -   helping students to identify career and vocational goals by developing      their self-analysis skills and sourcing and managing career information. This involves - (a) having an understanding of the pathways into higher education, (b) making and carrying out appropriate life choices and plans, (c) practising interview techniques, CV writing and cover letters, (d) identifying their strengths and weakness from the results of various interest and aptitude tests, (e) making students aware of employment opportunities, (f) visits to careers fairs (g) Career information day here in the College
