Well in school you should try do a practical subject and get used to working with your hands. Physics is another subject that would be of benefit. It would help in the theory exams that you complete after each of the off the job training modules.

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.

Studying Abroad

Why study abroad? Many studies show that a period spent abroad enriches a student’s life in both the academic and professional fields. The experience improves language-learning, intercultural skills, self-reliance and self-awareness. Many employers value this experience highly and it can increase the students' employability and job prospects going forward.

It is important to consider the differences between studying in Ireland and studying abroad, in particular: Application procedures, Duration of courses, College Fees and Living Expenses.
