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.

Introducing Apprenticeships

Apprenticeship is a programme of formal education and training. It combines learning in your place of work, with learning in an education or training centre. On successful completion of a number of phases of training, apprentices become recognised craftspeople or professionals.

An Action Plan to expand apprenticeship and traineeship in Ireland from 2016-2020 has been put in place. During the lifetime of this plan, the government hope to see 50,000 learners register on apprenticeship and traineeship programmes. 

The traditional craft apprenticeships include those in the Construction, Electrical, Engineering, and Motor sectors.

Over 20 new occupational apprenticeships are in the process of being developed and introduced in the Computer & ICT, MedTech, Insurance, Finance, Accountancy, Logistics and Hospitality sectors.

Details including entry requirementstraining structure, where to find apprenticeship vacancies and a range of related videos, are available via the menu structure on this page.
