Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Irish language strategy published 


Wednesday, December 22, 2010 




Irish language strategy publishedThe government has launched a new document which outlines plans for the Irish language. 

Called the 20-Year Strategy for the Irish Language 2010 – 2030, the plan aims to increase the number of people who speak Irish on a daily basis from 83,000 to 250,000 over the next two decades.

The Minister for Community, Equality and Gaeltacht Affairs, Pat Carey, said: "This new and comprehensive national plan will allow us to take a new approach and ensure that the state, language organisations and the public are working together to promote the Irish language."

Irish is currently a mandatory subject for students sitting the Leaving Cert, except for those who spent time living abroad or individuals with a learning disability.

Some 14,650 students took the higher level Leaving Cert paper this year, with 8.7 per cent achieving an A1.

A further 15,906 students undertook the ordinary level paper in the exams last June.
