Animation Skillnet are delighted to team up again with Screen Training Ireland, the Irish Film Board and a host of top Irish Animation and VFX studios to run the second iteration of the highly successful graduate traineeship programme for the animation and vfx sectors in Ireland.

The pilot programme saw 12 graduates placed in animation and VFX studios for up to 12 months, as well as receiving targeted and intensive training in specific skills areas throughout the training period.

The 2016/17 programme will take 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 over the following months.  Selected participants for the 2016/17 programme will once again be matched with leading animation, VFX and games studios and participate in tailored training through Animation Skillnet and Screen Training Ireland. The VFX and Animation Graduate Traineeship is a full-time programme for which a training allowance/bursary will be made available to selected participants.

Start Date:      Monday 10th October 2016

End Date:        Friday 24th March 2017
