The Screen Skills Ireland Mentoring Funding Scheme is an initiative that offers professionals at all levels and in all disciplines an opportunity to avail of mentoring supports or to engage a mentor at key stages in their professional development.
The mentor or mentoring arrangement can be local or international and the mentoring can take a number of forms, from a defined number of consultations/calls over a certain period, to international work placement, to shadowing or face-to-face career clinics.
Mentoring can work in different ways, depending on the up-skilling requirements, structure, and focus. Applicants may consider the following:
Business Mentoring (emerging or mid-career producers/business owners): A number of meetings/consultations over a defined period with a business leader.
Creative Mentoring: Different mentoring interventions based on mentee needs and mentor availability, e.g. consultation; portfolio/showreel evaluation and feedback; shadowing; international work placement.
Technical mentoring: Focused mentoring to enhance specific technical skills, e.g. shadowing; international work placement; one-to-one tuition.
If you are interested in accessing mentoring supports, please email Neil Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
