    Default Anyone a guidance officer

    I'm looking at career change and I've always thought about a school guidance officer.
    Is anyone out there one?
    What course do I need to study?
    What are your duties in a primary school?

    Any info that would be great.

    Hi, my SIL is a Guidance Officer in Qld she works at three different primary schools.

    She has a Bachelors Degree in Education and a Masters in Education (Guidance and Counselling)

    In Qld you need to have full registration as a teacher.
