Please check out the video below for more about the Network. Euroguidance Ireland, a member of the Network, is hosted by the Irish National Centre for Guidance in Education (NCGE). We hope that you find this update useful and of support to you in your role and we encourage you to take part in the activities mentioned and access the resources provided.




Euro-Quest was formally launched in March 2020. Since then, over 1800 students from TY classes all around the country have enrolled. We are delighted with the positive feedback we have received so far. This resource is ideal for use in class or as part of your virtual guidance delivery!
