“Working with our enterprise partners and our other stakeholders, Skillnet Ireland will champion and invest in initiatives which support businesses in Ireland to overcome these complex challenges and get ready for the recovery.”
Paul Healy, Skillnet Ireland Chief Executive
In partnership with:
The partnership of five Skillnet Learning Networks supporting the creative industry (Animation Skillnet, Gréasán na Meán Skillnet, Immersive Technologies Skillnet, Learning Waves Skillnet, and Screen Skillnet) have developed a sector-specific programme with Screen Skills Ireland to upskill business owners, managers and employees to tackle the impact caused by COVID-19.
The programme will address entry-level topics including COVID-19 induction for people entering new roles within the sector, as well as on-set and in-studio awareness and infection control training for existing employees. Managers will be upskilled in all aspects of risk assessment, policies, procedures and implementation of control measures, while business owners will have the opportunity to participate in business impact analysis, business continuity planning, strategy development and HR-related training.
