A new report has detailed how many Irish guidance councillors in schools are unqualified for their positions.
Up to one in six schools are currently using unqualified staff to advise teenagers on their future careers, according to the Institute of Guidance Counsellors.
This means that many of our Irish youths are being told how and what they should do to get to their desired career by people who are unqualified for their current position themselves.
The growing number is now up 12 per cent from four years ago.
It is believed that this rise comes after cut backs were imposed around career guidance in 2012.
