Tip of the Week from AA2A artists to students (as featured in our self-employment talks): 'Don't expect the opportunities to come to you, if you want to be an artist you have to be persistent.' AA2A artist 2013-14, Coventry University
Other news: our series of presentations promoting self-employment as a career and lifestyle option are going really well. This is included for host institutions who signed up for our 'deluxe' package. Wendy Mason, AA2A's National Director, has been travelling the country showing students what it looks and feels like to be self-employed and why it might work for them.
We've had some excellent feedback so far:
- “Brilliant insight into self-employment and how easy it is to start up. Gave me confidence that there is a lot of help out there for anything to do with working for yourself.”
- “Excellent, knowledgeable, informative, inspiring.”
- “Thank you! This presentation was really useful for someone who had only dabbled with the thought of it, but didn’t know much about it, or how to go about being self-employed. This was really, really informative and useful. I feel like I could be self-employed now. It's not as scary as it was before.”
The next presentations will be at York, Derby and Wolverhampton.
