For my particular job role, as a yield analysis engineer, good organization and communication skills are quite important. Along with having the technical knowledge, being able to properly communicate your ideas/findings is very important. A lot of my day is spent dealing with other people in the factory and it is very important to be able to communicate efficiently with them.

Naturalist
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Religious Education




 

Junior Cycle - Religious Education

Subject Group: Social
These subjects explore common issues faced by all people living in society. They develop the skills and knowledge used to manage personal resources and guide human behaviour.

Brief Description:

In Religious Education (RE) you will learn about what people believe, why they believe and how these beliefs influence their own lives, the lives of others and the world around us. You will explore how many religions, particularly Christian religions, have shaped the Ireland you live in today.


How will Religious Education be useful to me?

RE will be useful to you in:

  • helping you understand how people make decisions, how people are inspired by their religious beliefs, how conflict happens and how it can be solved
  • helping you solve problems and thinking for yourself when working with others
  • planning to travel to or live in other countries.

You can also continue studying RE as part of some courses and degrees when you leave school.



Note:  A new specification for Junior Cycle Religious Education will be introduced for first year students from September 2017 and assessed in 2020 for the first time.
