Administrative

Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Aquaculture Remote Classroom unveiled at Our Ocean Wealth Summit

Aquaculture Remote Classroom unveiled at Our Ocean Wealth Summit

Students will be able to actively learn about how fish is produced and farmed when the new Aquaculture Remote Classroom (ARC) begins visiting national schools throughout Ireland from September onwards.

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed TD officially launched the Aquaculture Remote Classroom (ARC) at Our Ocean Wealth Summit in Galway this week. He was joined by Felix Leinemann, Head of Unit from the Aquaculture and Maritime Spatial Planning at the European Commission and Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) Chairman, Kieran Calnan and CEO, Jim O’Toole.

Speaking at the launch, Jim O’Toole, CEO of BIM, said:

“I believe ARC will engage students and help to bridge the gap in understanding of how seafood is sustainably produced in our waters. By using Virtual Reality (VR) headsets, students will be able to plunge to the depths’ of the ocean to experience and learn about the environment in which salmon and mussels are farmed in Ireland. ”

ARC is being funded by the European Commission and forms part of the wider #farmedintheEU campaign, a European Commission led initiative that exists to promote aquaculture in Europe.
