Enterprising?

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.

Options after School

Leaving school is one of the major milestones for all students, and choosing what to do next is not always an easy decision. Most students will continue their education or enter training of some form, and some of the many pathways are shown below.

The majority of students will go on the Higher education (through the CAO) and Further education (PLC or FETCH training courses).

Opportunities for apprenticeships and training roles are now changing and widening to include degree level occupational apprenticeship options. There is also evidence that more students are studying abroad now than in the past.

Most of the available Education and Training options can be seen from the diagram below:
