Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Tools to help Leaving Cert Students

Doing the Leaving Cert in 2018?

Downloading the CareersPortal CAO Point Calculator App will be really helpful and it's absolutely free!

The latest app from CareersPortal.ie is an essential tool for all students of the Irish Leaving Cert.

Designed for both iPad, iPhone and Android, the Leaving Cert CAO Points Calculator does exactly that - it calculates your CAO points based on your subject results.

It’s quick and easy to use. You can input as many subjects as you want from Higher and Ordinary papers and the calculator will work out your top six scores, as used by the CAO.

The Leaving Cert CAO Points calculator is for students who are sitting the Leaving Cert in 2018 and beyond.

The calculator allows for the inclusion of LCVP grades and the 25 bonus points available to those who sit Higher Maths and achieve a H6 grade or greater.

We have not included Foundation level points as these may not be accepted by all colleges and the results may be misleading.

Download it now from iTunes Leaving Cert CAO Points Calculator.

Download it now for android  CAO Points Calculator Android .

A menu system included in the App provides a direct link to the CareersPortal CAO CourseFinder where you can search for the latest information on all current courses. The CourseFinder has loads of filters you can use to drill down and find the perfect courses. 

Examples of some of the filters in the CourseFinder include;

  • New Courses for 2018
  • Which courses accept ordinary level maths
  • Which courses don't require a science subject
  • All courses in a specific region, such as Munster
  • All Level 7 course or all Level 8 courses
  • All courses in a specific subject areas such as busines or enghineering
  • View courses with progression routes from PLC courses
