Creative Enterprise for Jewellery - Starting Your own Business at British Academy of Jewellery

Course description

Learn the skills to start YOUR very own creative business.

Whether as a jewellery designer, jobbing jeweller or designer maker. We've supported thousands of businesses, both young and old, over our lifetime and so we know a thing or two about what it takes to be successful. That’s why we've worked hard to create an exclusive and brand new nationally recognised qualification programme to help you, alongside or in addition to your studies at the Academy or elsewhere take your first steps in starting your own creative enterprise.

Course content

Delivered by expert tutors and pulling in many of the creative industrys best examples of successful start ups the programme is a mix of theory and practical with lots of chances for you to hear first hand from others and learn from their successes and failures.

Making the decision to start your own business is one of the most exciting things you will ever do. You'll be joining the ranks of the 400,000 new businesses that are set up in the UK every year, making up well over 90% of the UK's total number of businesses, and contributing hugely to the economy. There are plenty of reasons why people decide to set up new businesses, and before you start planning and preparing the launch of your new enterprise, you need to be clear about your hopes and motivations for becoming an entrepreneur. Not everyone who wants to set up a business will necessarily have relevant experience already so this course is designed to take you step-by-step through all the processes involved in setting up a business, from developing your idea and deciding whether self-employment is right for you to kicking off your first marketing drive and opening your business.
