Creative?

Creative

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 atrracted to the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design activities, 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.

Introducing Apprenticeships

An Apprenticeship is a programme of formal education and training. It combines learning in your place of work, with learning in an education or training centre. On successful completion of a number of phases of training, apprentices become recognised craftspeople or professionals.

Ireland has a long history of providing apprenticeships. Up until recently, most of these were focused in the Construction, Manufacturing and Motor industries, and include Carpenters, Bricklayers, and Motor mechanics. These are often referred to as the traditional Craft Apprenticeships.

Apprenticeships

Since 2016 the range of industries covered by apprenticeships has grown significantly. You now have a choice of taking apprenticeships from industries such as Computer & ICT, MedTech, Insurance, Finance, Accountancy, Logistics and Hospitality sectors. And the good news is that more apprenticeships are being developed all the time!

You can explore the various apprenticeships currently available using our CareerExplorer, where you can view details on all apprenticeships, and even check out those that are in development and expected to be available soon. Details such as the course content, training involved, and links to where the vacancies are advertised are all contained in each of the 50+ Apprenticeship profiles available.

We encourage you to watch some of the many videos we have collected for you to get a real feel for what apprenticeships have to offer - it's always best to hear directly from those who have done their apprenticeship!

Further details about apprenticeships can be found on the official apprenticeship website, apprenticeship.ie
