Coláiste na Sceilge provides a comprehensive Guidance and Counselling service to all members of the school community.

The Guidance and Counselling service assists students to develop awareness and acceptance of their talents and abilities. It supports learning to cope with the many aspects of students’ personal, social, educational and career development. This is facilitated through classwork and on an individual basis.

·         Personal and Social Guidance: facilitating the transfer of knowledge and skills relating to a student’s personal and social development. This area empowers students to make decisions, solve problems and change behaviour.

·         Educational Guidance: assisting in decision making, motivation, learning, study skills and choices in relation to subjects, levels and courses. Aptitude, ability, interest and other assessment tools are used to assist the student in the decision making process.

·         Career Guidance: assisting in the decision making process related to choices of further and higher education, training courses and employment opportunities. Preparation for work experience in Transition Year, Leaving Certificate Applied and fifth year  is an integral part of the guidance provided.

·         Counselling: individual and group counselling is available to all students. In partnership with parents and guardians we offer care, support and advice in times of particular need or crisis.


The following staff members form the Guidance and Counselling team within Coláiste na Sceilge:

Ms. Mary Golden: Guidance Counsellor

Ms. Susan Curran: Counsellor

The Guidance and Counselling staff work in collaboration with school management, year heads, class teachers, subject teachers, learning support teachers and programme co-ordinators.

The involvement of parents and the wider community is recognised as an integral part of the guidance programme and is of enormous benefit to the student.
