Guidance officers identify factors that can interfere or disrupt effective
learning, wellbeing and development, and plan or assist in planning
interventions or programs that can help students achieve positive outcomes.
Guidance officers may work directly with the student or with the student's
teachers, support personnel, family, other specialists, or professionals from
other agencies depending on the issues to be resolved and the age of the
student. Depending on the student's age, a range of issues may be supported by
guidance officers including personal and social development, mental health,
diverse learning styles and needs, and educational and career pathways.
