ScreenSkills is inviting industry professionals based across Scotland to participate in workshops to help them determine which skills and what knowledge is required to work in job roles relating interactive media and videogames.
National Occuptional Skills
Each year, ScreenSkills reviews and updates existing National Occupational Standards (NOS). NOS are statements of what someone needs ‘to do’ and ‘to know’ to perform a job role.
These standards are used as the foundations of apprenticeships and help to guide the development of educational courses at all levels. They are also a resource for the UK industry to support recruitment and management activities.
The workshops are a chance to participate and share your views on the key skills and areas of knowledge which are needed to work successfully in job roles across the UK’s gaming and interactive industries.
There are two online sessions for Scotland, both of which take place on Tuesday October 13 2020.
The sessions are two hours long and take place from:
- 10:00 – 12:00
- 14:00 – 16:00
ScreenSkills (formerly Creative Skillset) is the industry-led skills body for the UK’s screen-based creative industries – animation, film, games, television, VFX and immersive technologies.
The organisation works across the whole of the country to ensure that UK screen industries have access – now and in the future – to the skills and talent needed to succeed in a rapidly evolving global marketplace.
To ensure that standards reflect current practice and the needs of each nation, ScreenSkills are inviting employers and current practitioners to join these online workshops.
These are not training courses and are an opportunity for you to share best practice with industry colleagues.
