Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Junior Cycle - Typewriting

Subject Group: Practical
These subjects are 'hands-on' and involve working with tools and machinery on physical things like wood, metals and plastic. They may involve designing, planning and building things.

Brief Description:

Typing will help you to understand the keyboard and to use it fast and proficiently. Typing is involved almost daily now as we increasingly use modern technology.


How will Typewriting be useful to me?

Developing your typing skills will enable you to write essays, assignments and project work much quicker and accomplish more in a shorter period of time. Efficient typing can make a world of difference for those wanting to pursue higher education.

Typewriting is formally assessed by means of a two-hour examination paper at two levels - Ordinary level and Higher level.

Higher level Typewriting saw the highest percentage of As in 2013, with 34.1 of the 85 students who sat the exam claiming full marks. In fact, nobody who sat the exam failed!
