Guidance in St David's CBS refers to a range of learning experiences, provided in a developmental sequence, that assist students to develop self-management skills which will lead o effective choices and decisions about their lives. It encompasses the three separate, but interlinked areas:

Personal Guidance & Counselling

Counselling is a key part of the school guidance programme and is offered on an individual or group basis as part of a developmental learning process and at moments of personal crisis. Counselling provides a listening support to issues that may arise in a students home, social or school life. Meetings with parents and maintaining strong links with outside agencies is a very important part of the role.

Vocational Guidance & Counselling

Working with students to support their own individual career search including CAO application, PLC applications, apprenticeship applications, scholarships, funding and interview preparation.

Educational Guidance & Counselling

Supports students during key transition periods in their post primary education, transition from primary to secondary school, subject choices, TY journey and progression to 3rd level and a students chosen career path.
