The EIGCA is still committed to providing a formal education for aspiring designers but wants the programme to operate on a supply and demand basis to ensure we are not educating more people than there are jobs for.
The EIGCA has, therefore, decided to restructure the programme to create a vocational, learn-while-you-work scheme. It will only be open to prospective designers who are just getting into the industry and have already found employment in an EIGCA member’s practice.
The aim of the programme is to aid their development with a mixture of online learning and bi-annual workshops, whilst also receiving on the job training from their employer. We are still refining the format and will post regular updates so please continue to check the website for further details.
