CEO has developed an 8-week evening programme called Design Your Practice for those embarking and building a creative freelance career. We want to ensure that creative people have the right skills for business; support for new projects to grow; effective transitional support between academic learning and industry, the opportunity to revisit and revitalise their practice, increased confidence in their ability and the right work-life balance.
Design Your Practice will help participants to establish themselves and proactively design their future.

We cover the subjects of costing and pricing your work, marketing your services, planning and business structures, finance and administration. We want to contribute to the network of creatives who learn from and support each other across the country.
