The Guidance Counselling & Lifespan Development programme at University of Limerick is offered over two academic years on a part-time basis (mid-week evenings and weekends depending on location of delivery).
However, the programme requires a significant level of personal commitment from participants in terms of attendance, contribution, self-directed learning and their own time management.
This programme is recognised by the Institute of Guidance Counsellors. It is approved by the Department of Education and Skills (DES) for the purpose of appointment as a qualified Guidance Counsellor in the education sector. This qualification does not provide graduates with a recognised teaching qualification as required by the Teaching Council.
