What are your interests?

Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with 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.

Blackrock Further Education Institute welcomes mature applicants and encourages their return to study. Mature applicants are eligible to apply for any of our courses if they wish to broaden their education and skills and develop new interests. A substantial number of mature students enrol each year and the Institute believes that the contribution of mature students is valuable and beneficial to the Institute as a whole.

It provides grants towards the provision of services and the purchase of equipment for students with disabilities attending courses in the Institute.

The Student Sports and Social (S&S) Committee is the body responsible for the co-ordination of social, cultural and sporting events for students at BFEI. Representatives from each class are elected to the Committee towards the end of September each year. All students are actively encouraged to participate and support Committee activities.
