Course Description

Professional Skills for Creative Industries (short courses)

IADT offers short courses during the year (5 ECTS) as part of the Creative Futures Academy (CFA) – an initiative of Ireland’s three leading Higher Education providers of cultural and creative education (IADT, NCAD and UCD), funded by the Higher Education Authority’s Human Capital Initiative.

The CFA supports the early and mid-career needs of creative professionals by offering credited NFQ courses / modules to people working in the creative sector. By offering learners the opportunity to skill, upskill and reskill, the CFA supports the professional growth, reach and impact of the creative and cultural sectors.
