- LTI Assistant Coordinator (Digital Media)
Job Location: Young Irish Film Makers, St. Joseph's Studios, Kilkenny
Young Irish Film Makers are looking for two people with the passion and experience to work together in the area of personal and employable skills development through digital media and filmmaking as a youth arts practice. These positions are an excellent opportunity to become part of a well-established organisation working in a unique way with young adults in the area of digital media, film and related studies.
The YIFM Digital Media is a successful Local Training Initiative running a major award at QQI level 5. The programme supports young people from marginalised or disadvantaged backgrounds, creating pathways into further education, training and employment. With strong retention and progression rates for learners, this unique LTI has become very popular amongst young creatives and those who find themselves outside the formal education route.
These two roles will form the coordination team responsible for maintaining and building on a successful training programme in the youth development / informal education sector. See attached job specifications for details of each role.
