What are your interests?



Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's 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.

The Logistics Associate Apprenticeship is going from strength to strength, with 17 associated companies employing apprentices and 36 apprentices committed to the programme. The new ‘earn as you learn apprenticeship’ covers various employment disciplines within the freight distribution and logistics sectors. 

The Logistics Associate Apprenticeship is a Level 6 Higher Certificate in Logistics and is the first non-craft apprenticeship to be offered by Technological University (TU) Dublin and the first industry-led programmes to be delivered by TU Dublin School of Management. 

Apprentices are assigned a workplace Mentor who guides and trains the Apprentice through their journey on this programme. Mentors are individuals with years of industry experience and are trained by TUD to carry out this role.
