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

Set up by designers, for designers.

Developed in close collaboration with the Institute of Designers in Ireland (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 Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI) memberships.
