VFX and Animation Traineeship

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

The VFX and Animation Traineeship was launched in 2015, a collaboration between Screen Training Ireland, Animation Skillnet, and industry, aimed at raising the skill level of key emerging talent in the animation and VFX industries and enhance contribution to and understanding of studio processes and pipelines. Now in it’s third iteration this highly successful programme takes place over an intensive 6-month period, with a short intensive period of upfront training, followed by a mixture of on-the-job and classroom based training. Selected participants are matched with leading animation, VFX and games studios and participate in tailored training through Animation Skillnet and Screen Training Ireland. The curriculum for the training is developed by all stakeholders (the VFX Association of Ireland, Animation Ireland, Screen Training Ireland, Animation Skillnet and the Irish Film Board) and combines training in core skills for animation/VFX with specialist and studio-specific knowledge and skills. The VFX and Animation Graduate Traineeship is a full-time programme for which a training allowance/bursary is made available to selected participants.
