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 Liam Dowling from St. Michael's House to give some advice for people considering this job:
Do your homework, ask about it - there is lots of infomation out there. You need to be person centred, social, not afraid to mix and to have an understanding of disability or at least be prepared to learn about it.
People with an Intellectual Disability ARE NOT SICK , but they can get sick like everyone else and sometimes I feel people outside don't fully understand this. They don't just need Gods help. They need the help of qualified people that want to understand them so that their needs are met and they have chance to enjoy their life as much as is possible.

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.
The aims and objectives of the BA in Fine Art are to provide an educational context for students who wish to study Fine Art practices and theories at an undergraduate level.
It aims to equip the Fine Art student with appropriate skills to realise ideas and to foster in each student an articulate, critical and informed understanding of contemporary Fine Art, its evolution, contexts and critical discourses.
In addition to their own art practice, each student is encouraged to participate in the Broadcast Gallery housed in North House Gallery in DIT Grangegorman, on study trips to international art events, national trips focussed on land works, attend visiting lecturers, art survey sessions, artists talks, and gallery and studio visits, the majority of which are built in to the main programme.
While working within a modular structure students are constantly invited to see the interdisciplinary opportunities that exist throughout the Fine Art modules and beyond, mirroring the wide range of media and sources that is present in contemporary art practice.
