Resources for counsellors during COVID-19 »
We know that these are uncertain times for both counsellors and their students. To help you provide the best possible guidance to your students, we've assembled a collection of online resources that include FAQs, listings of webinars for counsellors and students, and the most up-to-date information from the University of Toronto.
As a high school counsellor or educator, you play a vital role in the success of your students. Thank you for working with us to ensure your students are prepared for the exciting opportunities that lie ahead at U of T Engineering.
This page contains a number of resources and events hosted by U of T Engineering that might be of interest to you. If there is anything we can do to further support you or your school, please let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org.
