Screen Industry Education Forum 2019.
Screen Skills Ireland has announced that it will host the Screen Industry Education Forum 2019.

The Forum will bring industry stakeholders, education providers & policy influencers together to focus on the skills development challenges and opportunities related to the screen sectors in Ireland.

Topics to be discussed on the day include:

  • The importance of investing in people and skills.
  • The importance of focusing on quality over quantity.
  • The need for skills development initiatives to respond to the needs of the sector in the right way.
  • The importance of capturing the outcomes and impact of skills development and using that data to promote the sector.
  • The importance of collaboration between industry and education.
  • The importance of regional development.
  • The importance of the developing skills for the future, soft skills and transversal skills.

Throughout the day there will be an opportunity for production companies and producers to undergo a Skills Audit with Regional Skills Forum Managers. The data captured during these audits will directly feed into future government education and skills policy. This will be done through an Appointments Service on a first come first served basis.

All other attendees on the day will have the opportunity to have their Skills Needs and other thoughts captured through round table discussions with Screen Skills Ireland staff members in the afternoon.
