PublishingPageContent
​​The role of the guidance officer within the primary school setting is to provide support for students following a referral due to a specific area of need. The most common form of support provided is through the counselling of students as individuals or in groups. Students may be counselled for adjustment and/or behavioural problems; to understand themselves better in relation to the world in which they live; and also, to work through any personal problems they might have.
 
In addition to the counselling role, the guidance officer assesses students with educational and behavioural difficulties to identify specific problem areas, and may assist with programs for these students. The results of these assessments can involve the guidance officer liaising with other personnel within the field of education support, eg. speech and language pathologists, learning support teachers and special education teachers. The guidance officer may also refer students and/or parents to external agencies.
