This qualification is designed for students who wish to start up their own project or company and wish to explore and extend their creative practice within the creative industries.
It can be used as a starting point for students who have identified a specific project that they wish to work on or to enable them to explore the basis of entrepreneurial activity by developing essential business and management skills in order to identify and respond to business opportunities in the creative sector.
This qualification is suitable for students who have an interest in starting up their own projects or company and wish to explore and extend their creative practice via a full-time or part-time immersive learning experience.
The qualification is also appropriate for students wishing to continue their education through applied learning, by locating that learning within a professional context in which they can work alongside industry experts to gain first-hand industry experience.
This qualification will provide students with an opportunity to cultivate their employability by developing their creative enterprise skills, expanding their industry contact base while developing their start-up projects and professional practice.
The qualification has been developed in collaboration with representatives from industry, universities, further education colleges and employers to ensure it provides students with the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to prepare them for employment, including self-employment and/or support a role in the workplace in the creative industries.
The objectives of this qualification are to give students the opportunity to:
Employment in the creative industry setting up your own creative company or progress directly into employment, in roles such as freelancer, account manager, consultant, talent manager, games developer, animator, director or producer within the creative industries.
This qualification will support you to develop a portfolio of work, enabling you to progress to higher education courses or conservatoires.

You can only apply for one full-time programme and one apprenticeship. You can do this together within the same application form, in what is known as a joint application.
