Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

European Coding Week at Monaghan Institute

Students from a number of local schools recently visited the computer department at Monaghan Institute to take part in a series of computer coding talks and workshops as part of a European wide initiative.                                                                                                                         
Learning to code is increasingly seen as being important in today’s world as rapid advances in technology change the way we communicate, work, shop and think. The workshops are an attempt to help students develop their understanding and coding skills to help them cope with these new changes.
                                                                                                                       
Students from Inver College, Carrickmacross and St Aidan’s Comprehensive, Cootehill had an opportunity to talk to Computer Games Level 5 and Advanced Software Innovation Design Level 6 students at Monaghan Institute and explore the many coding projects being completed in a variety of languages such as C#, Java, Javascript, CSS, Scratch, Minecraft and Unity etc.



In addition, they were able to log on to the college’s Moodle Virtual Learning Environment and have fun with a number of problem solving and brain teaser computer quizzes.  The computer department at Monaghan Institute would also like to extend an invitation to schools to join us for our HOUR OF CODEevent, which we will be running from Monday 4th-Friday 8th December 2017                                                                        

Also, as part of the SCIENCE FESTIVAL a family fun day is being held in Monaghan Institute on Saturday 18th November, 2017 from 12:00 -5:00pm.

If you would like Monaghan Institute to host an event for your students on coding or technology you can contact either rayquinn@monaghaninstitute.ie or fergalsherry@monaghaninstitute.ie
