Screen Skills Ireland (SSI) is pleased to announce the launch of a new Post Graduate Diploma in Creative Leadership, aimed at creative sectors like animation, games, VFX, and immersive technologies, that has been developed by SSI in collaboration with TU Dublin and Animation Skillnet and is available via Springboard+.
The Creative Leadership Programme aims to empower its participants to achieve their career goals, realise their leadership potential, and develop the organisations they work for.
This industry-focused programme has been designed in collaboration with key animation, VFX, immersive technologies and games studios to build a talent pool of future leaders, support the sustainable growth of the creative industries, and empower participants to create a thriving climate that drives performance. The programme aims to transform participants from operators and creatives to competent leaders within their creative organisations.
This programme will be aimed at individuals that have moved or wish to move from a technical or creative role into a position where they are leading a creative team. Participants will explore the key issues and opportunities that inspire successful leaders to drive ambition and transform culture within their organisation.
Speaking about the programme, Gareth Lee, Manager of Screen Skills Ireland, said, “We’re delighted to partner with TU Dublin on this much-needed programme, which will benefit both individual participants and the animation, VFX, games and related industries more widely by developing a new generation of leadership talent.”
Dr Caroline O’Sullivan, Head of Creative Media in the School of Media at TU Dublin, added, “The need for advanced skills in creative leadership has been identified by industry and this unique programme is a fantastic opportunity for those who are to the forefront of the Creative Industries in Ireland to bring their skills to the next level.”
