So, you want to get your Guidance qualifications! Above is a sampling of situations you might encounter as a Guidance counsellor. They run the gamut from personal issues to school-related ones.

This course will get you started in the Guidance field. You’ll learn more about Guidance programs and related resources, and you’ll also learn some basic interpersonal and human-relations skills. These are helpful in addressing the challenges of teaching in contemporary school settings.
