CPD Training for Design Professionals - IDI Design Enterprise Skillnet

Design Enterprise Skillnet offers subsidised training that is tailored specifically to the needs of Irish designers and design practices across the country.

The Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI) has just launched an exciting CPD training programme IDI Design Enterprise Skillnet. It is focused on meeting the training and skills needs of designers and design businesses.

All IDI members are automatically members of the IDI Design Enterprise Skillnet.

Developed in close collaboration with the IDI and its members, the Skillnet training focuses on helping designers and design SMEs grow their business, up-skill their teams, and attract and service clients in a rapidly changing commercial landscape.

This formal training initiative of the IDI is a voluntary network of established design businesses and practitioners that delivers focused and tailored training that responds to the needs of the design sector. Supported by Skillnets funding, the training is subsidised for member companies and individuals with IDI memberships.

The Design Enterprise Skillnet has a multi-year agenda to provide subsidised cross-discipline, whole of career training that has been created specifically for the needs of designers and design practices.

Through our IDI Education Committee, we will also attempt to guage the skills deficits in our industry at graduate level as experienced by employers - this will give us an insight into how we need to better target CPD and training among recent graduates.
