The RED ROCK production training scheme, a collaboration between Screen Training Ireland and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, provides essential on-the-job training to new entrants to the film and TV industry as well as continued professional development for experienced production personnel on the TV3 drama series RED ROCK. Trainees engage in meaningful work-based learning, supplemented by short training initiatives, developed with Screen Training Ireland and other stakeholders as training needs arise.
The production offers set-based training facilities, equipment and expertise. Training on the programme provides an opportunity for long-term employment in the sector, as well as a structured career path through which to develop skills in TV drama production.
The RED ROCK production training scheme utilises innovative time- and cost-saving on-set technological tools and apps, providing training opportunities for TV production personnel to learn more about the changing TV production landscape. As well as taking on its required complement of paid trainees, the production provides shadowing and work-based learning opportunities for emerging talent, who may be eligible for a training allowance through STI.
New entrants may be recent graduates or professionals from other sectors whose experience could prove relevant and valuable in areas of the TV production sector experiencing skills shortages thus enhancing capacity in the sector.
This scheme is now closed.
