The National Centre for Guidance in Education (NCGE), host of Euroguidance Ireland, will cease to operate from 1st September 2022. The NCGE and its Management Committee, Léargas, the Department of Education, the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Solas and ETBI have been carrying out significant work since earlier this year to prepare for the reorganisation of guidance support. A Transitions Working Group and additional sub-groups have been meeting regularly to co-ordinate the reorganisation.

In relation to Euroguidance, Léargas (former host organisation of NCGE) is not in a position to host the Euroguidance centre and will terminate the contract from 31/8/22 in line with the closure and cessation of operations of the NCGE. The Department of Education remains deeply committed to the Euroguidance programme and are in consultation with the European Commission on the designation process to find a new host for the Euroguidance centre. In the meantime, if you have any queries in relation to Euroguidance, please contact guidance@education.gov.ie

NCGE / Euroguidance Ireland collaborated with Léargas in the delivery of this Transnational Cooperation Activity (TCA). 

The aims were:

  • To support Guidance Counsellors to explore learning, training and work opportunities in Europe;
  • Ensure Guidance Counsellors develop mobility guidance counselling skills to support students in accessing these opportunities;
  • To provide Guidance Counsellors with an opportunity to network with colleagues across Europe and promote collaboration to support students interested in opportunities abroad;
  • Encourage Guidance Counsellors explore the opportunities available to them under the Erasmus+ Programme, particularly under KA1 mobility.
