Bord Scannán na hÉireann / the Irish Film Board and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland have announced the appointment of Crowe Horwath as Consultants to draw up a new Strategy for Skills Development in the Audiovisual Industry.
The development of skills within the audiovisual production sector is integrally linked to Ireland’s capacity to scale and grow the industry. The film and broadcasting sector is undergoing tremendous turbulence and change as technology changes how content is made and consumed. The recent introduction of the new and enhanced tax credit will also act as a stimulus to growth. This strategy will provide an important policy framework for further growth and capacity expansion.
Alongside the development of professional skills within the sector, the strategy will also map the provision of production-related courses at third and continuing level and how they interact with industry. Other key issues to be addressed will be current and future trends within the industry, influencing workforce skills.
The development of the strategy will comprise interviews with industry stakeholders and an on-line questionnaire to ensure full industry participation.
