School Guidance Handbook

​Welcome to the School Guidance Handbook (SGH)! The SGH is an online resource to support the development and delivery of the school guidance programme. As the guidance counsellor has a key and central role in the school guidance programme much of the content is directed towards the guidance counsellor. However, since the key to effective Guidance is a whole-school, collaborative approach, the content has been developed with school management and staff also in mind. All are encouraged to access and use the Handbook in support of students.
