Loughlinstown Training Centre, part of the Dublin Dun Laoghaire ETB, is currently recruiting for their new Festival Management and Sound Production Traineeship. This exciting new programme will offer persons seeking employment an excellent opportunity to acquire the skills, knowledge and receive support to secure employment within the Festival and Event industry.
Loughlinstown Training Centre has been working closely with the training companies Sound Training College, Swilly Group and local employers to develop programmes that will deliver jobs in the Tourism Industry. Recently developed programmes include Festival Management and Local and National Tour Guiding. All of these programmes incorporate a healthy mix of theoretical learning, practical skills training and a period of work placement with a local employer. The programmes are ideal for learners wishing to follow a career in Festival Management.
Feedback from employers familiar with the course has been very positive thus far.
“The entertainment industry employs as many people in Ireland as Google, Apple, Yahoo and Twitter combined.” – Denis Desmond, of MCD Productions.
“The Festival Management and Sound Production course gives students a real world understanding of the live event industry. We continue to use graduates to staff our events on a regular basis.” – Brian Gormally, of Sherpa Events.
Derek Elders, Loughlinstown Training Centre, said “We have been liaising with employers in Dublin to understand their specific employment needs”. “We feel that our programmes will provide the learners with the skills and competences that employers want but also a number of industry specific qualifications recognised by employers”. Derek continued, “The learners will also receive job seeking support from a qualified jobs coach and we are very confident that there will be a high job placement from this programme”.
Courses are scheduled to start in South Dublin in June. Places are limited to 20 per course and anyone interested is advised to register their interest early to avoid disappointment.
