Making it in the global village

Thu, Nov 16, 2017

The CAO online application system has just recently opened, bringing many students to that critical juncture regarding decisions about their life path. Those who are considering apprenticeships, post Leaving Cert courses (PLCs), private colleges, and gap years still have time to mull over their options while they prepare for exams. Students who are seeking to enter programmes in a wide range of disciplines, in systems where entry requirements are low, need to make those big decisions soon.

Traditionally students were forced to look to Europe for alternatives to high points courses here (medicine, veterinary, and physiotherapy), but now they are voluntarily applying to these programmes and others from a full range of disciplines. There is a greater understanding now as to what is available, and how low the cost is, compared with here. The United Kingdom may have been the main location of choice some years ago but in the wake of post Brexit (the withdrawal of NHS funding of fees), and uncertainty regarding the entitlements of grant holders, more and more students are looking to mainland Europe.

Visual display unit assessor training course

Thu, Nov 09, 2017

The Safety, Health, and Welfare at Work Act 2005 requires that all hazards in a workplace be identified, risk assessed, and that adequate control measures be put in place. This also applies to employees’ workstations, offices, etc. Where an employee is sitting at a desk and working on a computer the law states that the workstation should be assessed and where necessary adapted to fit the worker. The term used is ergonomics, and the process is called a VDU assessment (visual display unit, ie, laptop, computer, etc). The aim of the VDU assessment is to identify and subsequently reduce the amount of strain put on the body and eliminate visual and musculoskeletal stress and damage.
