LEVEL 8 (30 ECTS)
A Media Training Development Scheme by TG4 and Údarás na Gaeltachta began today at Atlantic University of Technology’s Cluain Mhuire Campus. This is the third year of the scheme which aims to support production companies in the independent sector to develop the skills and talent of their production staff and encourage an emerging talent pool to work in the sector.
TG4 and Údarás na Gaeltachta will make an investment of €160,000 each in the scheme. Additional training for participants of the scheme will be conducted by Gréasán na Meán Skillnet, Atlantic Technology University and CREW. Participants will be awarded A Level 8 credit in Media Practice at the end of the scheme.
Thirteen candidates in total have been selected for the scheme who will be located in ten companies from Donegal to An Rinn.
This part-time programme involves students undertaking a 12-month placement with companies while undertaking block delivery of taught content as well as discipline specific training.
This programme will be taught using a combination of master class presentations by industry experts and ATU staff. A core element of the programme is work integrated learning, where each student will have an industry mentor and an academic supervisor. Assessment will comprise thematic papers, reflective journal and report.
