Guidance officers deliver a broad range of services to school community members. They contribute to the development of a comprehensive student support and wellbeing program that is responsive to the needs of the school community.
Guidance officers may work directly with students in addition to working with a student's teachers, school support personnel, other specialists or external support providers. Support offered by guidance officers includes providing advice and counselling on educational, behavioural and mental health and wellbeing issues. Psychoeducational assessments also form an important part of the work guidance officers undertake to enhance positive educational outcomes for all students.
Guidance officers provide leadership, support and case management in responding to some of the most complex and challenging of circumstances including student protection matters, critical incidents, mental health issues, and prevention and postvention support.
