Update on COVID-19 and Screen Skills Ireland Operations

Friday, March 27th, 2020

Regarding today’s government announcement, Screen Skills Ireland are continuing to comply with HSÉ advice on COVID-19, and in the interest of public health, we will be encouraging staff to work remotely. With a business continuity plan in place and remote working already set up, we expect day-to-day operations to continue as normal where possible.

Our office will close from 6pm tonight until Monday, 29th March. Any meetings will be conducted remotely or via conference line where possible, or rescheduled if not. We would encourage external contacts to communicate via email or phone to the relevant staff member.

We will be delivering some of our planned activity for 2020 online free-of-charge over the next 6-10 weeks. Please see Upcoming Courses for more details.

Screen Skills Ireland International Bursary Awards are currently postponed pending the situation with COVID-19.

Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland and Screen Skills Ireland advise all industry professionals to consult the HSÉ guidelines and recommendations regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

You can find up to date information on the HSE website, and advice on how to proceed if have any concerns or questions about the virus.
