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.

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.
