Screen Training Ireland Rebrands to Screen Skills Ireland at the Inaugural Screen Industry Education Forum
19 Nov 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Screen Skills Ireland, formally Screen Training Ireland has announced its new name at the inaugural Screen Industry Education Forum.

Screen Skills Ireland is hosting the inaugural Screen Industry Education Forum, which aims to bring together screen industry stakeholders, education/training providers and policy influencers to focus on the skills development challenges and opportunities of the screen sectors in Ireland, including Film, TV, Animation, VFX, Games and AR/VR.

Discussion panels covering international best practice; the skills needs of the Irish screen industry; and the Irish education landscape, will explore ways in which education and industry can collaborate more effectively in future to address the skills needs of the sector. Chaired by Andrew Barnes, Associate Director at Olsberg SPI, the sessions will culminate in round table discussions for the participants, focusing on 4 key questions:

  1. What are the key skills gaps in the Irish screen sectors currently?
  2. How can industry stakeholders and education/training providers engage in a better way in the future to address current and future skills gaps?
  3. What collaborative industry/education models work best for both industry and education?
  4. How should industry/education collaborations be funded?

Speaking about the event, Gareth Lee, Manager at Screen Skills Ireland, said:

“The establishment of an annual Screen Industry Education Forum was a key recommendation of the Crowe Horwath report on a Strategy for the Development of Skills for the Audiovisual Industry in Ireland 2017. Screen Skills Ireland are delighted to play a leadership role in convening the first forum and acting as a nexus between industry stakeholders and education/training providers. We hope today will see the start of positive conversations, leading to fruitful collaborations that start to address some of the skills needs of the screen industries in Ireland that will support the sector to continue to grow and thrive over the coming years”.

The name-change to Screen Skills Ireland is said to better reflects the remit and range of activity of Screen Skills Ireland while aligning the organisation more closely with education policy in Ireland, and with its sister agency, Screen Ireland.
