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

European Schools Guidance Service

The Department of Education provides funding for access to appropriate guidance for the children of Irish citizens who are enrolled in the 13 European Schools in 6 European countries.
This service is coordinated by the 
National Centre for Guidance in Education (NCGE)  / Euroguidance Ireland and is delivered by qualified guidance counsellors recognised by the Irish Department of Education.

This guidance support is intended to supplement, but not replace, the guidance support already available to students in the European Schools.
It is directed specifically to the needs of Irish students who may be considering an application to Irish third-level institutions and who have questions regarding general entry requirements, particular course requirements, application procedures and deadlines.

The service is provided in the autumn term each year.
