Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

TAP Testimonials

There are currently almost 200 schools nationwide running the TAP programme in Transition Year.  See below for some of the teacher's views:

It is the best teaching resource I have ever seen. It is a great resource particularly since it incorporates the use of IT...very what the Department is seeking for schools to do."

 - Grainne Wilson, Teacher, Dominican School, Wicklow

"I was delighted with the Tourism Awareness resource material. I liked the lay out of the book [teacher's manual] and the fact that the information was up to date."

- Ann Norris, Teacher, Presentation Secondary School, Waterford

As a teacher of the Transition Year Tourism Awareness Programme for over twelve years, I would like to congratulate Fáilte Ireland on their new, improved resource material. The revised course has a CD Rom and access to their website. The result is that the presentation of the programme in the classroom is much more animated and interactive."

- Paula Duffy, Teacher, Sion Hill Secondary School, Sion Hill Blackrock, Co.
