New Entrant Training Schemes
New Entrant Training Schemes are designed to provide essential on-the-job training to new entrants to the film and TV industry. This will be supplemented by short training initiatives, developed with Screen Skills Ireland and other stakeholders as training needs arise.
The production will offer set-based training facilities, equipment and expertise. The training on these type of programmes provide the potential for long-term employment in the sector, as well as offering participants a structured career path through which to develop their skills working on film and TV productions.
