Linguistic?

Linguistic

The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, or story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

Pre-Apprenticeship Courses

A pre-apprenticeship course is a Post Leaving Cert course aimed at students who wish to go on to pursue an apprenticeship. They are a good option as they prepare future apprentices by equipping them with skills and work experience providing a foundation to build an apprenticeship on. Pre-apprenticeship courses give candidates a year to sample the work before undertaking an apprenticeship.

When the time comes to apply for an apprenticeship the applicant is in a much stronger position to undertake the apprenticeship and is an attractive applicant for a prospective employer. Many construction sector pre-apprenticeships offer Safe Pass training as an optional component of the course.
