Social?
Social
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

The REACH+ Career and College Preparation Programme is Irelands most comprehensive, in depth, multi-format careers programme available. Much more than any textbook, it is a complete, integrated, classroom learning environment that supports Students, Guidance Counsellors and Teachers of career related content, including LCVP and LCA.

Unlike any other careers resource available, it contains four key components:

  • The Workbook
  • The Students Online Career File & Portfolio
  • The School Administration
  • The REACH+ Network Support and Training

The REACH+ programme has been designed to facilitate the delivery of Career and Educational Guidance in Senior Cycle. The programme is only available in participating schools.

The programme covers five core areas:

  • Career Planning
  • Self Assessment
  • Study Skills
  • World of Work
  • World of Education

Students are encouraged to engage in a wide variety of activities and research designed to prepare them for the transition from secondary school to work or college. Students taking part in the program each receive a Student Workbook and gain access to REACH+ Online, where they can complete additional exercises, do career research and monitor their study performance over the course of their senior cycle.

Guidance counsellors gain access to an easy to use online management system that enables them to keep track of students' progress, and prepare and deliver classes using powerpoints, videos and guidelines offered through lesson plans.

This consists of three main areas:

  • Student / Class Management
  • Resources (lesson plans, powerpoints, videos etc)
  • School Guidance Website

Further details of the REACH+ programme can be found in our promotional materials below. Additional information can be obtained by contacting reach@careersportal.ie, or by phone (01) 4402314
