Classroom Course Components
The syllabus of the Creative Communities Igniting Change classroom course is divided into five different units called modules, each of them focusing on different aspects of cultural creative industries and entrepreneurship:
Module 1: Why a Creative Career

Module 4: Marketing for Creative Entrepreneurs
Module 5 Part 1: Funding for Creatives
Module 5 Part 2: EU Funding for Creatives
Module 6: Co- working and Clustering
Module 7: Creative Collaboration, Community and Connection
Each Module has two different training resources:
- A Learner’s Workbook – this outlines the aims, learning outcomes and usage of each module.
- A Powerpoint/PDF Presentation – again this is to be used in conjunction with the Tutor’s Guide, this is a suggested course and includes the materials and activities. If it is your first time delivering the course, this is a good starting point.
- Trainer’s Guide- such materials can add value and compliment both the learner’s workbook and the presentations.
You can download all seven modules as a zip file.
The Creative Communities Igniting Change classroom course is designed as a complete curriculum, each module can be used as a stand-alone session. Therefore, each module starts with a basic introduction about the topic which can be skipped if you use more than one module or the whole course.
You do not need to use the materials in any particular order. If you want to concentrate on a specific topic you can jump in at your point of interest – although using the whole course is suggested.
