Counselling at school
At the school you attend, counselling must be provided. This will help you to determine your further education and your choice of job (educational and job counselling). If you have personal problems and difficulties at school, you may also receive advice (social-educational counselling). The school may also assist in finding the best people to advise you and help you to make contact with them. You and your parents will receive information about the counselling that is available to you. Depending on your needs, counselling may occur in groups or individually. The aim is to help you develop and to utilise those skills which you possess – and without being bound by gender roles.
Counselling shall also help reduce social differences between pupils, discourage pupils from not completing their education, and integrate ethnic minorities.
Pupils in primary, lower secondary and upper secondary schools.
Counselling concerns choices relating to further education and careers as well as personal, social and emotional problems that may have a bearing on your education and houw your fare at school. Any educational problems you may have, however, are the responsibility of your contact teacher and the educational and psychological service (PPT).
The service is free of charge.
The pupils parents/guardians and assistance bodies outside the school
As the body responsible for the school, the municipality/county municipality is responsible for providing counselling. If you do not receive the necessary advice, you may consult the county governor who is responsible for seeing that the provisions of the Education Act are followed.
