    I am not based in Scotland so I am afraid that I am unsure what the post of Principal Teacher of Guidance is. I have never heard myself of this post in English schools, and although I could make a guess, it might not be correct!
    May I suggest that you post this under one of the Scottish Forums?
    You may get an answer there from someone who actually knows what s/he is talking about. I don't come into that category!
    Sorry I can't be more help. Best wishes
     
  4. Hi Vicki, would you mind me asking how you went about your distance learning course in Pastoral Care?
