About the Programme

The Creative Enterprise Programme at Cockpit is a professional development programme designed to help small creative practices in Lewisham enhance their business ability.

Generously funded through the London Borough of Lewisham and the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) as part of the UK Government’s Levelling Up strategy, The Creative Enterprise Programme will give you the confidence and skills needed to take action to develop your business and practice.

The programme is based on Cockpit’s successful formula of support for creative minds. We combine information-led, practical workshops with one-to-one mentoring and coaching. Throughout the programme, we’ll work closely with you to build your skills, refine your plan and improve your business direction and strategy.

The programme will run from July 2024 to January 2025. There are 50 places on the programme in this phase. 

Deadline to apply: 30 June 2024 at midnight
