The main areas supported by the Guidance Counsellor in the school are:

The Guidance Counsellor is available to meet with students in a safe and confidential environment. Students may discuss concerns/problems and identify helpful ways of moving forward in overcoming challenges.

Recognising that no two students are the same and different students have different abilities and talents the Guidance Counsellor encourages each student to reach their true potential. This involves supporting students with subject choice and levels, study skills, exam techniques and motivating students to remain focussed and goal orientated.

The Guidance Counsellor aims to help students to identify career and vocational goals. Students will explore further and higher education options, recognise employment opportunities, prepare CV, and cover letters and plan for their educational / vocational path after their post primary education in Coláiste Iascaigh.
