The Design Enterprise Skillnet offers subsidised training courses tailored specifically to the needs of designers and design practices across Ireland.

Set up by designers, for designers.

Developed in close collaboration with the Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI), our training programmes focus on helping designers and design SMEs grow their business, up-skill their teams, and build sustainable and profitable relationships with their 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 Skillnet Ireland funding, the training is subsidised for companies and individuals who are members of Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI) memberships or ICAD.
