  • A second chance at a third level education | Writing, life and other animals
    qualification This course aims to give them an opportunity to meet their potential The course is full time and runs over two years It is open to adults over 20 and unlike most third level courses there are no prerequisites when it comes to academic qualifications Every applicant is judged on their own merit and the application process couldn t be more straightforward simply fill in the application form and attend an interview Successful applicants aren t required to pay any tuition fees for the course and there are numerous maintenance grants and financial support schemes available to students depending on their individual circumstances The course introduces students to a wide variety of disciplines spanning information technology and business including computer networks and IT infrastructures database design and development computer programming multimedia development for Internet applications information systems for business accounting and economics It is a course designed with the students in mind It is a University qualification so it is a tough course but we tailor the course to suit the students They still work as hard as all other third level students but we adapt the course to take their background into account said John McAvoy This course really prepared me for working on computers commented Pat McCarthy who graduated from the Diploma in Applied Business Computing in 2004 I didn t realise at the time that the subjects were so relevant to the type of skills required by Business John McAvoy is justifiably proud of what students achieve on the course Every two years we have a group of students dressed in academic robes at a graduation ceremony they would have missed out on if not for this Diploma he said Two years from now a new group of students will be graduating from UCC with a

  • Change is the only constant | Writing, life and other animals
    adapt quickly to changing circumstances then organisational change can be one of your biggest allies when it comes to career development As usual there are lessons to be learned from nature Charles Darwin the father of evolutionary theory hit the nail on the head when he observed It is not the strongest of the species that survives nor the most intelligent that survives It is the one that is the most adaptable to change His biological insight makes a seamless transition to the workplace if there s one thing that will help your career to flourish then it s your ability to embrace and adapt to change Yes your suite of skills is important your experience invaluable and your education indispensable and I m not trying to belittle any of those things but all other things being equal your ability to adapt to the changing dynamics of the modern workplace is often the defining characteristic for career success Look at some of the most successful people in the world today are they the brightest the most talented the best educated Some maybe but many of them aren t While wealth shouldn t really be used as a measure of success in this instance it serves to illustrate a point A few weeks ago the Sunday Times published its annual Rich List Flicking through the pages reveals a wide array of people from all walks of life Some of them are undoubtedly bright talented and well educated individuals but that s probably not what propelled them into the rich list Pick a random selection and scratch the surface and what you ll find that they have in common is unwavering tenacity and self belief coupled with an amazing capacity to embrace adapt to and thrive on change Take a leaf out

  • Apprentice: you’re fired! | Writing, life and other animals
    hire one of these buffoons at the end of the series Why on earth would a man who obviously doesn t need the money and who doesn t suffer fools gladly decide to lumber himself with such a motley assortment of corporate misfits Worst of all he s actually obliged to give one of them a job at the end of it and based on their performance on the tasks to date you can t help but wonder at the wisdom of that Don t get me wrong I love The Apprentice it makes for compelling viewing but for all the wrong reasons It should be all about watching outstanding young business people tackle challenging business related tasks as they struggle to reconcile conflicting goals the selfish desire to become Sir Alan s apprentice and the need to work with others as a team to win each task Where the above description falls down of course is with the outstanding young business people bit They re conspicuous by their absence There s something deliciously entertaining about watching incompetent people floundering out of their depth and sinking fast It s good telly but you can t help wondering where they managed to find these people Apparently these are the best of over 20 000 applicants to the show Well if this selection of rueful wannabes is the cream of Britain s emerging business talent then ambitious young Irish people should be rejoicing Based on this evidence opportunities across the water for those with a shred of business acumen should abound At the end of the day while The Apprentice is dressed up as a show about recruitment Welcome to The Apprentice extols the official BBC website it s the job interview from hell it s actually nothing of the sort Candidates
