About this Course

This course will provide learners with a comprehensive overview of the practical management of digital animation production, primarily 2D animation but also 3D and VFX. It is supported by Screen Skills Ireland (SSI) the state body responsible for training in the screen industries.

This accredited course will provide learners with an opportunity to acquire and demonstrate knowledge of the animation production process to a level 9 standard. Learners will gain and develop their practical production skills specifically for the Animation industry, to keep pace with the ever-changing technology and practices and its use in Animation production.

This 2nd iteration of the course will help students develop their idea as a creative offering and tailor it to different funders. Creative development skills were recently recognised as an important skills gap in the Screen Ireland Skills gap analysis 2019-2020. Its design will enable students to incorporate their skills into real world 'as live' industry led productions which is an integral part of the programme.

Students will achieve their learning outcomes through practical work ranging from full team productions to individual exercises. Candidates for this certificate will be drawn from the graduate population of Animation and related programmes, graduates who have made their way into industry and want to return to education, and industry professionals looking to up skill or change direction. People working in the broader creative and cultural industries who seek a pathway into Animation production also qualify.

The significant success of the first iteration of this programme with over double the applicants as there were places indicates strong demand. It is further supported by the success of professional development initiatives such as those offered by Animation Skillnet and Screen Skills Ireland in the past. It will run on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings allowing for candidates to continue in work.

Entry Requirements

Learners must have achieved a primary honours degree at 2.2 standard, higher, or equivalent.

Applicants who do not meet the academic entry requirements, but can demonstrate significant professional experience at an advanced level may be considered for admission in exceptional circumstances (under the Recognition of Prior Learning policy).

All shortlisted applicants will be interviewed prior to receiving a place.
