Whitehall College offers a professional, full-time Career Guidance and Counselling service to all students. It is a confidential service, aiming to help each student to get the most from their time here in the college.

Career Guidance:

As students come to the end of their course it is necessary to look at and plan for the future, whether this is into employment or applying for other educational courses. The Guidance Counsellor can help with making these decisions and can provide course information, the application process for 3rd level colleges, time management, study skills and preparation for the world of work.


Beginning PLC courses can be a stressful and anxious time for many, whether as a mature student returning to education after a long time or for students who have just completed their Leaving Certificate. The Guidance Counsellor can help you with this and many other issues including - personal issues, family or relationship issues, self esteem and confidence issues, bereavement, stress, depression, addictions and other issues as they arise. Confidentiality is assured and no personal issue will be discussed with anyone else without the permission of the student.

A visiting Psychologist from the CDVEC Psychological service will also see students when they visit the college every two weeks.

Student Identity Card:

All students are issued with a Student Identity Card when their registration process has been completed.
