I would advise them to ensure they enjoy working with young people. If possible try to get some teaching experience; I started out as a substitute teacher before applying for my H Dip in Education.

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.

Herbal Science - CR330
 

The programme is focused on the production, characterisation and applications of herbal extracts and natural products. The herbal extracts and natural products are used as ingredients in the medicinal, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries.

The Herbal Science course is structured along module streams where the student builds knowledge in the areas of plant science and production, human biology, food and nutrition, and herb and natural product applications.

The specific biological subjects are supported by more general analytical techniques important for laboratory and research. Foundation skills across a broad range of core science subjects provide a sound basis on which to build specialist knowledge offering a wide range of opportunities in industry, in research or in business development.
