COMPASS: Next Generation Programme
We have up to 20 places available for a dedicated cohort of makers
COMPASS: Next Generation Programme will run on an annual basis. Applications are now open for the 2019 programme, which will commence in October 2019.
We have up to 20 places available for a dedicated cohort of makers, who will work through the programme together.
The Next Generation programme of COMPASS is a personal and business development programme for makers at the start of their career. We know that the first year in business is challenging. COMPASS: Next Generation Programme will equip participants with the knowledge and skills to decide how they want to take their business idea forward.
The programme is designed for those who have just graduated, or those who have just started their practice and have been in business for less than a year.
The programme will help you challenge your business thinking and explore ways to make your business more sustainable and entrepreneurial.
How to Apply
To apply, please submit your application online here.
Before starting your application, please be aware that you will need to submit:
• A maker statement
• Your CV
• Images of five pieces of work– these should be representative of the type of work you are currently making
• An image of yourself. Preferably this would be a photograph of you at work, with your work, in your studio or delivering a workshop
• Answer specific questions about your business
• A video clip of you, explaining why you’d like to take part in the programme
Please film a short video clip (no longer than two minutes) of you talking to the camera about your practice and ideas for your craft practice. Craft Scotland is trialling video clips instead of in-person interviews to minimise the carbon imprint of our programme.
It is essential that we understand why you think this programme is right for you.
