Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Denis Canty from STEPS to give some advice for people considering this job:
|It is challenging. But if you adopt the right attitude straight away it can be a lot easier. I would advise anyone to be a hard worker and maintain a positive attitude. Also be organised, right down to keeping notes. You start your career in college, not after it.|

Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
This B.A. fosters competence in French, German or Spanish alongside an enriched understanding of English. Fluency of expression is a key priority in the world of work, and the aim of this programme is to increase linguistic versatility in every respect. It is delivered over four years through three strands of subject matter including composition skills, literary studies, and language learning and teaching. Graduates will be proficient communicators in their chosen European language and highly adept at text analysis and production in English.
English modules include literature, composition, and linguistics, as well as cultural studies, cinema, and the teaching of English as a second language. French, German, and Spanish modules develop spoken competence, written accuracy, and intercultural understanding through translation and literary analysis.
This four-year honours programme involves three years of study in the DIT and one year abroad at a partner institution in the country of the foreign language. Alternatively, qualified students in Year Three may undertake an English language teaching assistantship in France, Germany, or Spain.
