Reach+ Career and College Preparation Programme

Programme Overview and Demonstration For 2nd Level Guidance Counsellors and School Management

County to County Online Roadshow 2021


FAO: Guidance Counsellors, Principals and Deputy Principals, will be travelling (virtually) throughout Ireland over the coming months to showcase our REACH+ Programme.


The REACH+ Career and College Preparation Programme is Ireland’s most comprehensive, in-depth and multi-format careers programme available. Much more than any textbook, it is a complete, integrated, classroom learning environment that supports Students, Guidance Counsellors and Teachers of career related content, including TY, LCVP and LCA. The programme incorporates a Whole School Guidance approach unlike any other careers resource available.


It contains four key components:

  • The REACH programme book
  • The Students Online Career File & Portfolio
  • Guidance Counsellor Administration, Resources and Lesson Plans
  • The REACH+ Network Support and Training
