Screen Skills Ireland occupies a central and crucial role at the centre of training and skills development for the AV industry in Ireland. It is well-regarded by stakeholders, with a strong reputation for quality and for engaging industry. The organisation is seen as a key link between the industry and skills development provision, with a deep understanding of the needs of the sector.

Speaking about the event, Lorcan had this to say, "Since taking on the role of Film & TV Programme Director in 2017, I have continued to grow our links with industry. We recently redesigned the Film and TV programme and Screen Skills Ireland was key to that process. I look forward to highlighting the incredible work by my colleagues and the students at this forum. By involving industry in our programme, it gives them confidence in DkIT and the graduates we are producing."
