The National Centre for Guidance in Education (NCGE)

The NCGE is an agency of the Irish Department of Education and Science. Its main roles are to support and develop guidance practice in all areas of education and to inform the policy of the Department in the field of guidance.

Adult Educational Guidance Initiative

The Adult Educational Guidance Initiative consists of thirty five guidance projects throughout the country with the aim of providing a quality adult educational guidance service to participants in VTOS, literacy and other adult and community education programmes nationwide. It's all about connecting adults with learning. Up to 1999 there was no guidance and counseling service for adults. The White Paper - Learning for Life (2000), highlighted the need to establish a supporting service in guidance and counseling for adults.
