Who is this course aimed at?

The Certificate in Television Production is aimed at those wanting to launch a career in TV programme making, as well as those already in the industry wanting to upskill.

What skills will I learn?

Our Certificate in Television Production combines study of the media market, both domestic and international, with specialised training in craft and production. Lectures will introduce students to the current industry environment with in-depth knowledge of media ownership, funding models and programme formats. Students will develop the professional skills required to launch a career within the television production sector: concept development, writing and pitching, raising finance as well as specialised technical training.

What does a television production professional do nowadays?

Television production involves input from many different skilled people. This includes researchers, producers and directors, as well as camera operators, sound recordists and editors. With so many new platforms come many more opportunities for working in the creative media sector. Traditional live and pre-recorded programmes are still in high demand in broadcasting and added to that are new chances to work in the growing area of online delivery of programming.


Will I get any work experience?

All participants will get work experience in RTE, contributing as well as observing live and pre-recorded programmes. This highly specialised placement programme will allow students to work side by side with production professionals. It provides an invaluable insight into how the industry functions, what roles exist within the sector and how the creative process works.

What other opportunities will I have to make contact with industry professionals?

We have made strong connections with the production sector and providing students with the opportunity to meet with industry insiders is a key part of this programme. Each week participants will be introduced to experienced and senior speakers working in production both in Ireland and internationally. An annual seminar organised by students on current and emerging trends within programme production will provide further networking opportunities.

What are the benefits of blended learning?

The programme is delivered in a blended format, combining both online delivery and face-to-face placement activities. Blended learning will offer you the opportunity to study part of the programme within your own schedule and at your own location. Using state of the art communication and education technology, you will have live access to CIT lecturers and a range of international speakers. The work placements in Semester Two will be on-site in an industry setting.
