Overview

The award-winning Higher Diploma in Arts in Television and Media Production, developed by WIT and Nemeton TV in partnership with Udarás na Gaeltachta, has been successfully preparing new media talent since 2006.  The course will commence again this September 2020 with an exciting and innovative brand new blend of practical workshops and online classes. The eight-month course is uniquely tailored to the needs of students and is particularly suited to those who wish to develop their skills while also working. It is designed to provide students with the essential practical skills to enter the television, film and audio-visual industries as professionals. Hence, our graduates find work immediately upon completing their studies. 

The Higher Diploma in Arts in Television and Media Production, developed by WIT and Nemeton TV in partnership with Udarás na Gaeltachta, has been successfully preparing new media talent since 2006.  The course runs from mid-September to mid-May and is designed to provide students with the essential practical skills to enter the television, film and audio-visual industries as professionals. Our graduates find work immediately upon completing their studies.  

The course will offer each of the participants the opportunity to work in a live production environment and at the end of the course each student will have directed or edited his or her own television programme. These programmes will satisfy the broadcast criteria of both TG4 and RTE.  As there is a demand for bi-lingual producers, directors and editors, the course will be taught through both Irish and English, therefore enhancing the linguistic abilities of students.

Applicants must hold a Level 7 qualification or higher and must have a level of competency in spoken Irish. Applicants without the above minimum requirements but with relevant industrial experience and language competency will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

 

Glacfar le hiarrataisí ó dhaoine gan na cáilíochtaí thuasluaite, ach go bhfuil taithí oibre acu sa tionscal agus an cumas cuí Gaeilge. Déanfar measúnú ar iarrataisí mar seo ó chás go cás. D'fhéadfaí a mholadh d'iarrthóirí áirithe cúrsa Gaeilge a ghlacadh chun a gcuid scileanna teanga a fheabhsú, ach na cáilíochtaí eile a bheith acu.

Toisc gur foghlaim chumaisc atá i gceist – meascán de ranganna ar líne agus roinnt ceardlann i Nemeton TV agus IT Port Láirge – feileann an cúrsa thar cionn do dhaoine atá ag obair go lánaimseartha nó go páirtaimseartha. 

Múinfear cuid den chúrsa trí mheán na Gaeilge, rud a chuirfidh le scileanna teanga na scoláirí. Déanfar é seo trí iad a thumadh i dtimpeallacht oibre as Gaeilge.
