Do your homework, ask about it - there is lots of infomation out there.  You need to be person centred, social, not afraid to mix and to have an understanding of disability or at least be prepared to learn about it. 

People with an Intellectual Disability  ARE NOT SICK , but they can get sick like everyone else and sometimes I feel people outside don't fully understand this. They don't just need Gods help. They need the help of qualified people that want to understand them so that their needs are met and they have chance to enjoy their life as much as is possible.

Enterprising?
Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Accounting is the process of taking financial data, analysing it, and presenting it in reports that can be easily interpreted by others. This is crucial for businesses, where managers do not always have training in finance, but need this information to make informed decisions.

Law is the system of rules which governs society; practitioners of law are trained to analyse, interpret, and apply it. There are laws which apply to almost every aspect of life; including business and trade regulations, criminal activity, family disputes, property development, and European law.

There is an eight-month work placement during the third year.
