Courses & Events


Working with Immersive Technologies Skillnet was so easy and impactful for us. Once we told them that we wanted to upskill our teams, they sourced providers, got the quotes and put a contract in place, along with providing a large subsidy for the training. There is no bureaucracy, just a business friendly approach to providing support. This must be one of the easiest and clearly impactful business supports available in Ireland.

Pat O'ConnorManaging Director, VRAI

I really value the partnership I have built with Immersive Technologies Skillnet. They have been a great source of information on training providers and are really generous with their support allowing us to stretch our budget further for our employees. They connect seamlessly with vendors we use as well as sourcing others, so there's no added stress. I am delighted to work with Immersive Technologies Skillnet and look forward to our continued relationship.

Allowing time for employee training, personal growth and upskilling is of huge importance to us at StoryToys. There are continuously a wide variety of courses provided by Immersive Technologies Skillnet, which have been developed with careful consideration as to what is relevant, of interest and necessary in the industry and to our team at StoryToys. This is paramount to keeping the creative sector in Ireland thriving.
