Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Aidan Maher from Construction Industry Federation to give some advice for people considering this job:
|Try gain experience in some area of construction if possible to see if it’s for you. If you’re interested in a 9-5 job this is not for you!
If you like meeting with new people each day and dealing with issues which they may have regarding the project this is a good job for you. If you like to take charge of situations then this is also a good role for you to take on.

Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the QQI, HEA or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
This four year programme is designed to equip the graduate to engage with the health and leisure sector as a well-qualified, valued and respected honours degree professional and researcher. It involves the study of six pillars - Exercise Science, Health Studies, Activity Leadership, Physical Education, Professional Practice plus students choose their preference from ‘Education in Aquatics’ and ‘Outdoor and Experiential Learning’ at the outset. Whichever one is their preference, the other is also studied to a lesser degree. All subjects have a mix of applied theory and practice designed to allow the student to develop a broad skills-base.
Students will pursue their major specialism in one of the following areas in years three and four; Adapted Physical Activity, Fitness Professional, Physical Education, Sports Development, Wellness Promotion.
Most students follow a common programme for the first three years. At the end of year 2, a number of the students can choose to apply to enter the Physical Education or Adapted Physical Activity specialisms as these major specialisms require two years to complete (year 3 and year 4).
Those who continued within the Health and Leisure specialism into year 3 can now choose to apply to pursue their Bachelor of Science Honours Degree in one of the following major specialisms in year 4:
· Health and wellbeing
· Sports Development
· Athletic performance
The honours degree programme includes a significant block practice placement in year 3 (12 weeks), completed in a local, national or international Service provider, as well as the completion of a major independent study/thesis in year 4.
