Glenealy IT Centre has identified the film industry as an area for potential job opportunities in County Wicklow. As a result, we have been running filmmaking courses for a number of years. We are an accredited Pearson BTEC International Training Centre and currently run the internationally recognised Pearson BTEC International First Diploma in Creative Media Production course. Additionally, we have devised a new short course in Digital Media and Film Production.
