Creative Ambitions is a new online skills programme designed specifically for freelancers in the performing arts and live events sectors, with aims to upskill and retrain so that creatives can realise their full potential.

The programme includes a carefully curated set of live seminars, videos, tutorials, and discussions.  The course kicks off in January 2022 with the Intake session, after which participants can access all materials as they are released. Topics will cover themes such as customer insight, digital skills, green opportunities, investment readiness, and much more. Participants can do all of it - or just a little.

Working with specialists and peers, this skills programme is the first of its kind.

To take part, you must be:

  • Aged 25 and over
  • Based in Scotland
  • A Creative Entrepreneurs Club member (it’s free to join)
  • Professional in performing arts, live events or crafts
  • Struggling to make enough money
  • Ready to up-skill and/or re-skill

The programme has been developed & delivered by Social Investment Scotland and The Future Economy Company. This programme is funded as part of Skills Development Scotland's Creative Industries Freelance Workforce Recovery Programme supported by the Scottish Government National Transitions Training Fund.
