Online Creative and Artistic CPD & Entrepreneurship Training

Are a freelancer or SME working in the creative sector but you don’t have the time to dedicate to attend physical training courses?  We have the perfect solution for you with our tutor led online courses that give you the same feel and education as attending a physical course but in an online environment.

From running our Creative Entrepreneurship Programme over the last 3 years we totally understand that having access to the right information and training are critical, but the most important fact is that this information and training are focused on topics and issues that really affect you as a creative.

So, we’d like introduce you to our new online Creative Entrepreneurship courses.

These courses focus on starting, growing and sustaining your creative business and creative career – planning the strategy for development, growth and the necessary steps you can take to build a sustainable career.  This all takes place in an inspiring, creative and relaxed online environment!

In all of our courses 4 topics come up: Why – What – How – Who. We will look at your vision for the future and the value propositions that you are basing your creative business around and critically we will ask, who are you? why you do what you do, your motivation and much more…

The delivery will be online but what’s different is that we will be there to work in partnership with all of the participants.  We will create outcomes together that we are both responsible for and we will be on-hand to help you via group and one-to-one online meetings, email support, webinars and mentoring.

The initial courses run over the 4 weeks with a group workshop once per week for 2 hours, a 1 hour group Hangout once per week for any group questions / feedback you might have and a 1 hour one-to-one online session with us each week.  So all in all you will get a minimum of 4 hours working with us per week plus a lot of videos, workbooks and assignments to complete each week that will really move your creative business forward.

The course works just was well for individuals as well as companies, however, because of the nature of the course we can only take 5 people at a time on the journey with us at this stage.  The price of the course will be €150 per person so if more than one person from your organisation would like to take part then you can.
