Next month the Creative Quarter welcomes a new family member in the form of the School for Creative Startups. School for Creative Startups Kent is an adult education skills and support course for creative entrepreneurs who need that extra boost to get their business idea off the ground. The move is part of an overarching plan to support Kent’s vibrant cultural scene as well as encourage economic growth in the county, which already boasts 4,000 employees at 1,190 creative businesses.
Running across an academic year from October through May, this part time programme provides you with 12 full days of teaching covering everything you need to know to get your startup going and growing, including cash flow, marketing, business models and more.
Wrapped around the training sessions is as much one to one staff support as you need, delivered at a time that works for you- not to mention all the peer support you’ll receive from the network of classmates you’ll quickly develop.
You’ll also have access to our utterly vast online community, which houses thousands of relevant articles, e-learning sessions, discussion boards, templates, an events calendar, offers, discounts and every training session recorded to revisit at your leisure.
We also have an amazing network of advisors called the Titans of Industry who are available for sector specific advice, to help you tackle those tough to solve challenges.
The course culminates in May with the end of year Showcase where students realise pop up shops for press, buyers, investors, VIPS and the public, putting all that they’ve learnt to the test.
