How does my school get access to Euro-Quest ?
Click the 'ACCESSING EURO-QUEST' box section above
In each school delivering the resource one staff member is required to act as the ‘Euro-Quest LEADER’.
This function will ideally be performed by the Guidance Counsellor or TY Coordinator but can also be a subject teacher in the school.
I enroled on www.euro-quest.ie but I haven't heard anything more?
On initial enrolment you SHOULD receive an automated e-mail from euro-quest.ie advising you that your enrolment is being reviewed.
It can be the case that certain automated communicatiions get classed by e-mail clients as junk / spam.
Please check your junk / spam mailboxes and / or e-mail email@example.com and we will investigate for you.
How do I get other school staff members involved?
If you have a 'LEADER' in place (see above) and it is your intention to deliver Euro-Quest collaboratively (for example the Guidance Counsellor linking with the Transition Year Coordinator or with a team of subject teachers) just request that any additional staff members involved in delivery in your school register to access the resource.They are to do so by going to www.euro-quest.ie, clicking ‘Register / Enrol' and selecting the enrolee type of ‘TEACHER’ from the drop down list displayed.
NCGE/Euroguidance Ireland will contact the additional teacher(s) in your school regarding the status of their enrolment and provide further information on the coordination of delivery with the school 'LEADER'
What do Guidance Counsellors and Teachers say so far about Euro-Quest?
'Everything was excellent...its vital that the person delivering it prepares well in advance'
'Very user friendly..opportunity for students to think about local area from the view of point of our foreign students'
I really enjoyed teaching this course I found all the separate modules very interactive and engaging. I particularly enjoyed module three'
'I think the programme is excellent and the workbook / teacher guidebook included a huge amount of material which is really useful for me to have and i am very appreciative of having'
I feel the videos and experiences in the stories were excellent and a wider range of people would give a greater insight for the students to see'

Is the resource available in Irish?
Ós rud é nach bhfuil an acmhainn ach díreach curtha i gcrích i mBéarla, táthar ag súil go mbeidh athruithe agus oiriúnaithe breise ag teastáil gan amhras de réir mar a fhaighimid aiseolas ‘beo’ ó Bhaill Foirne agus ó Mhic Léinn sna míosa atá amach romhainn. Éilíonn aon athruithe breise den sórt sin - laistigh de dhá leaganacha teangan go comhuaineach agus thar chineálacha ábhair ar líne agus as líne - acmhainní nach bhfuil ar fáil faoi láthair ag an LNTO.
Tá sé i gceist go bhforbrófaí leagan Gaeilge chomh luath is atá tástáil leordhóthanach déanta ar Euro-Quest sa timpeallacht bheo agus dóthain acmhainní in ionad chun é seo a ghníomhachtú agus a bhainistiú.

This was something that NCGE / Euroguidance Ireland have always been considerate of.
As the resource is only recently finalised in English it is expected that there will no doubt be additional changes and adaptations required as we receive ‘live’ Staff and Student feedback over the coming months. The incorporation of any such further changes - within two language versions in parallel and across online and offline content types - requires resources that NCGE do not currently have available. It is intended that an Irish version will be developed once Euro-Quest has been sufficiently tested in the live environment and enough resources are in place to activate and manage this.
As a first step NCGE plan to translate the Student Workbook and Teacher Guidebooks and internal discussions have already taken place relating to this.
At this time we cannot provide a definite timeframe but we will keep you up to date as we progress.
