CULTURAL ENTREPENEURSHIP SKILLS PROGRAMME (article first published : 2004-03-19)

CREATE SA, in partnership with Arts Training Consortium Consortium, is calling for applications for the skills programme in Cultural Entrepeneurship (NQF Level 4)

Learners who are employed should have the full support and written permission of their employer to participate in all modules of the programme.
