Enterprising?
Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Adults in Ireland have tens of thousands of courses to choose from. They are run in all corners of the country - so it shouldn't be difficult to find one that suits you.

Many courses offer an award on completion, and so can be classified according to the level of the award. For simplicity sake, we classify courses according to 5 Ed Zone's.

Ed Zone 1
All courses up to and including Junior Certificate standard (NFQ Levels 1 - 4)

Ed Zone 2
Covers Leaving Certificate and most one year Certificates (NFQ Level 5)

Ed Zone 3

Ed Zone 4
Mainly covers Degrees and equivalent. (NFQ Levels 7 & 8)

Ed Zone 5
Covers Postgraduate and specialist professional awards. (NFQ Levels 9 & 10)

No, not at the moment, however, I wouldn't rule it out. I have an interest in the accountancy and taxation side of our business.
