Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with 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.

Over 5,357 offers issued in CAO Round Zero today

A total of 5,357 offers have been issued by CAO today (1 August) to 4,363 applicants.

The offers will be available to view online from 6am (on 1 August). Successful applicants will also receive a paper offer notice by post, an email and a text message (if they have selected this option) with details of their offer.

Round Zero offers concern applicants who are not competing with those awaiting 2019 Leaving Certificate examination results, or who are assessed on other criteria.

The applicants who fall into this category include graduate entry medicine applicants, additional mature applicants, deferred and Access applicants, and applicants presenting QQI FET/FETAC qualifications for consideration for entry to courses with a quota for QQI/FET applicants.

What is a QQI/FET applicant?

QQI/FET applicants are those who have successfully completed a PLC course and are now the holders of a qualification that is recognised by Quality & Qualifications Ireland (QQI). PLC courses are recognised programmes of study which form a bridge between secondary school and Third Level education. Applicants can apply through the CAO for a course with a designated quota for QQI/FET applicants.

“QQI FET/FETAC applicants who applied for a course with a quota for QQI FET applicants should also check their account.

 “Offers must be accepted by 5:15 pm on Wednesday next, 7 August. Failure to accept an offer by the reply date will result in the offer being cancelled” she added.
