Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Production management involves co-ordinating and controlling all the activities required to make a product.
This course has a mixture of engineering and business subjects, which develop a strong understanding of both the technical and the managerial aspects of production and the necessary support operations such as supply-chain management, quality systems, accounting and human resources. Production Management (LM063) has been re-launched as Technology Management and has changed substantially and therefore the points for Production Management in 2011 may not be an accurate guide to the points for Technology Management in 2012.
