What are your interests?

Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Changes to post-graduate entry requirements for Primary Teaching

Four colleges are changing their Irish oral entry requirement

Changes to post-graduate entry requirements for Primary Teaching

There will be changes to the Irish oral entry requirement for students applying for post graduate programmes in primary teaching in DCU, Maynooth University, Marino Institute of Education and Mary Immaculate College.  

At present, applicants who have already satisfied the Minimum Entry Requirements in Irish, English and Maths, have to do three separate Irish oral examinations. Each of these oral examinations take place on the same day as an interview at the institution concerned. 

Starting from 2019, there will only be one Irish oral examination, which will take place before they apply to their preferred college. They will then apply to their college of choice and be called to interview. No further oral exam will take place. 

The oral Irish examination will cost €65.
