The Irish Film Board Appoints Gareth Lee as Manager in Screen Training Ireland
08 Jun 2018 :
Gareth Lee
Gareth will be responsible for the roll out of a new plan of action for the development of skills across the whole screen sector being Film, TV Drama, Animation, Television production, VFX, Games and VR / AR.

Gareth will also work with the skills sub-committee of the Irish Film Board with regard to the roll out of the recent Crowe Horwath report on the Audiovisual Sector.

Prior to joining Screen Training Ireland, Gareth worked at Ballyfermot College of Further Education where he ran the Animation degree programme and most recently established the inaugural diploma programme in 3D & Visual Effects — the first programme of its kind in Ireland.  Gareth also brings a vast wealth of experience in training from his role in Animation Skillnet where he established the network which has delivered industry-focused training solutions for the Animation and related sectors in Ireland.  

Gareth has a proven track record of working with key stakeholders to deliver successful work-based training initiatives for the sector that better align education/training to the needs of industry. He is a graduate of TCD, DCU and DIT with a BA in English, an MSc in Multimedia and an MA in Music Technology. He is a member of the Advisory Board for Animation Ireland, specialising in education/training.

In November 2017 Gareth was invited by the EU Commission to speak at the European Vocational Skills Week conference in Brussels on the topic of ‘Career Long Learning’.

James Hickey, CEO, the Irish Film Board said: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Gareth Lee to the role of Manager of Screen Training Ireland.  Never has the development of skills within our sector been more pertinent than now and we look forward to working with Gareth on the development of a new skills plan for the sector”.

Gareth Lee said: “I look forward to taking on the new role of Manager of Screen Training Ireland and working closely with the Irish Film Board, the experienced staff of Screen Training Ireland and key industry stakeholders to support skills development initiatives that will underpin the continued growth of the screen sectors in Ireland.”
