Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

New Accounting Technician Apprenticeship available

A new Accounting Technician Apprenticeship route is now available to school-leavers wishing to pursue a career in accountancy and financial services.

Students now have an alternative to the college route, offered by Accounting Technicians Ireland (ATI).

The new Accounting Technician Apprenticeship offers a fast track to a career in accounting, earning while you learn, and at the same time gaining valuable experience with major accountancy firms, or in small accoutancy practices. Employees who wish to change the direction of their career towards a rewarding role in accountancy can also do so through this route.

On successful completion of the programme, graduate apprentices emerge as fully qualified Accounting Technicians, equipped with the skills to work in industry, commerce, practice and the public sector.

Graduate apprentices also have the opportunity to progress to the Chartered Accountants Ireland qualification.
