ENTERPRISE

Introduction

The aim of this subject is to provide an opportunity to develop a range of practical skills and techniques that can be applied to the world of creative work. The sessions take place across the site as well as in a practical skills, purpose-built workshop. Central to this subject is the focus on your understanding of Health and Safety in a workshop and how to use a range of tools and equipment safely. This subject is centred on real-life customer facing projects and commissions.

Learning, Knowledge and Skills

This subject will focus your skills on designing, sourcing and producing a range of products using a variety of techniques. These may include: felting, ceramics, woodworking, metalwork, textiles, photography, decoupage, appliqué, mosaic, jewellery making and tie dye.  The second element of Enterprise is the attention to the budget setting, planning, business and leadership roles and team work.  These are essential and lead to products being advertised, marketed and sold through a variety of platforms such as the college farm shop and online. 

Progression and the Future 

Having developed a range of practical and creative skills and understanding you could move into a range of jobs and further study. This could involve working in a practical setting such as a workshop, studio or something more business-like that would help you further your enterprise skills, customer-service and entrepreneurship.
