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 email@example.com
European Day of Languages Competition
Whatever the dream, it’s always useful to have a language to take you there! We invite pupils, with the help of their language teacher and guidance counsellor, to apply for their dream job in the country where the language they are learning is spoken. Pupils simply put together a cover letter and Europass CV in the language they are learning. Teachers select one entry per class to submit, and two winning classes (one each from Junior and Senior cycle) will win a trip to a European country to explore the dream career path!
