Photography students get inspired at West College Scotland

Over 70 Photography students were inspired, supported and connected on Wednesday 9th November, at the ‘Be Your Own Business Enterprise Event’, through Paisley Campus.

HNC & HND students were very fortunate to have 3 fantastic entrepreneurs from their industry to give them advice and support about business start, employ-ability & enterprising skills needed to work effectively within the creative industry, followed by a Q&A session.

photgrpahy-1The purpose of the event was to give students insight about what they might want to do once they finish their photography courses, knowledge about the resources and funding available to them, their niche in the market, unique selling point and most importantly the type of skills needed to start a freelancing business in photography.

 

The 3 entrepreneurs who were involved in this event were: David McGinty from Rooftop Mosaic, photography-2Paulina Brozek from Paulina Brozek Designs and lastly Kris Kiesak from Kiesak Photography.

All of the entrepreneurs freelance within the creative industry, in Glasgow however their businesses focus on different aspects of photography such as weddings, commercial, fashion, design and much more. So the Q&A was a worthwhile and fantastic session towards the end of the event.

photography-3A week after the enterprise event, over 10 students has approached Bridge 2 Business to apply for the £100 Bridge 2 Business Test the Market Grant, which is fantastic as they have been inspired and are making their hobby come to reality!

A huge thank you goes out to the Photography Department, at Paisley Campus for supporting the Bridge 2 Business enterprise event for the last 2.5 years.

Each year the relationship with the photography students has become stronger and Bridge 2 Business has created various volunteering paid opportunities for the students!

Bridge 2 Business – Inspiring All Enterprise Event

Certainly all were inspired, connected & supported!
Bridge 2 Business’ 1st monthly enterprise event took place across West College Scotland, Paisley Campus on the afternoon of Wednesday 12th October 2016. Over 100 students came along to this event to learn about business start up advice, employability, funding options and placement opportunities from 4 young, professional and well known local heroes:

  • Chris Hughes from Estendio (App Development)
  • Crag Traynor from Storii (Web Development)
  • Nick Cohen from PCR (Tech Support & Networking)
  • Connor McQueen Johnston from Dalraida Games (Gaming)

4 talented entrepreneurs – all from the IT industry had great stories and advice to share with the students followed by a Q&A session, where students had the opportunity to ask whatever they wan
ted. The IT/Computing department at the college collaborated with Bridge 2 Business thoroughly to support the event to make sure it was a successful one!


Supporting Lecturers deliver Enterprise!

Over the 2 years, Bridge 2 Business has supported lecturers deliver ‘business’ modules to students in the most interactive and engaging way. By embedding ‘enterprise’ into the graded unit projects, module assessments and classroom challenges. Focus of topics has mainly been around business planning, selling skills, and pitching techniques, working with entrepreneurs on website and app development, creating a new package and design for an entrepreneur’s product, planning and organising an enterprise event and many more.

Lecturers believed a touch of enterprise to any curriculum can help make the course interesting and enjoyable for a student, most importantly achieve a pass in the course. It also helps the lecturers tick off various boxes in their marking guide/descriptors to show that their students have been using various skills and techniques, as well as initiative to pass the overall course.

Recently, 15 HND Interactive Media students had to develop a website for 4 small business start-ups from various industries. This project ticked off many boxes for students’ graded unit and also lecturers’ descriptor/marking criteria. This project allowed students to work with small businesses, create a service of the client’s choice, organise meetings and consultation with the client, meet deadlines and then towards the end of the project, invite the client back to the college and pitch a short presentation to them about the website. The lecturers believed it was as fantastic way to get the students to complete their graded units, a challenge and also great experience of working with a client. Not only students received a SQA accreditation for passing this module, but Bridge 2 Business also handed out certificates to say well done for working closely with us!

Another example involved 30 HND Make-Up Artistry students, who had to complete an ‘enterprise’ module about selling and pitching techniques that were required in order to be a successful representative for a fashion brand. Students had to pretend that they were a representative that worked for a reputable and well known fashion brand such as Mac, Bobby Brown, Urban Decay or Clinque and had to sell their product(s) to a customer, by using various selling and pitching skills.

Bridge 2 Business helped to deliver this module by simply running a workshop based around speed dating for role-play, product creation and innovation and then pitching to a panellist of fashion entrepreneurs. All students chose a brand of their choice, researched about their brands in depth, created a power-point presentation explaining why they chose that brand, pretended their brands launched a new product in the market eg mascara or foundation and why this product should be bought. Students were helped with each task by the Bridge 2 Business team and they were also given the opportunity to do role-play to help them improve their pitching skills. Lecturers believed this was a great way to get students to come out their shells and deliver well to an experienced panellist of entrepreneurs. Usually this module is delivered to students by lecturers and no role-play or entrepreneurs come to judge the pitches. However, this year the lecturers decided it was best for Bridge 2 Business to deliver this module to all Hairdressing, Make-Artistry and Beauty students, to make learning for enjoyable for the students. It also helped students receive a pass for that particular module from SQA!

How it all kick started for me!

My journey with Bridge 2 Business began last year while I was studying HND Beauty, at West College Scotland Greenock Campus.

Our lecturer had arranged for Sukie and an entrepreneur from the beauty industry to come to our classroom to talk about enterprise and opportunities for those who were interested in freelancing/business start ups.
The session Sukie had organised was indeed very interesting, or shall I say inspiring?
The beauty entrepreneur Safina Raja, gave us an insight of what it was like out in the industry, what to prepare for and talked about her experiences and knowledge of marketing, pricing, competition and much more.

It was fantastic to know what help and support was available to students who were studying on campus, especially Greenock. I always thought there wasn’t much support available in the Inverclyde region simply because I lived miles away from Glasgow.  So, therefore I was glad my lecturer had put us in touch with Bridge 2 Business.  The information provided in the classroom was really good and made sense; therefore I had decided to arrange a 1-2-1 meeting with Sukie a week later.

When I met with up with Sukie, I told her about my business idea: face-painting as a business start up, she gave me some fantastic information and knowledge of how to get kick started and what direction to take.  She explained the Bridge 2 Business ‘test the market grant’ to me and this was amazing as it was a massive help to starting up and taking those first awkward steps to buying the kit, equipment, marketing and more!

The grant process was fairly straight forward and easy for me to follow through, did take few weeks however, in the meantime Sukie was there to mentor and coach me to think about the social media channels that could be set up without any costs involved or attending networking events to try and get clients etc.  I am so grateful to Bridge 2 Business for all the support they have provided me so far with the funding, marketing, networking opportunities, attending events and most importantly a further referral to Business Gateway for more support.

It’s now few months into having my face painting business and I have certainly learned a lot from the knowledge that was given to me by Bridge 2 Business, as well as going out there and experiencing it for myself. I will thoroughly recommend Bridge 2 Business to all those students who are currently studying at West College Scotland to go talk to Bridge 2 Business if you have that business idea which could work and receive the support from them.

I still have ongoing support from the Bridge 2 Business team and I know that they are there if I need them. Therefore thank you Bridge 2 Business!
I am on the road to becoming a successful business woman…

Laura Kadakovska, West College Scotland

Laura Hit’s the Market with Bridge 2 Business stalls and discusses her trading experiences at West College Scotland

Local Hero gives advice to other business start ups about Bridge 2 Business and market stalls.

Recently, Laura Kadakovska was interviewed by the Bridge 2 Business team and she told us how the market stall have been the most helpful and useful part of a marketing tool on campus this year.
The market stalls have helped her to promote Scottish Institute for Enterprise and Bridge 2 Business
events, activities and competitions to lecturers and students. Most importantly it has prepared her to
trade professionally with customers on and off campus. With a bit of encouragement, motivation and marketing support from her mentor Sukie, she’s up and running!
This year, she ran at least 15-20 market stalls for her own business ‘Works from the Soul’, on and off campus and more than 20 stalls on campus for promotional events, activities and competitions.

Laura Kadakovska

laura1In December 2014, Laura applied for the ‘Test the Market Grant’ from Bridge 2 Business and by February 2015, she was behind the market stalls selling her hand-made goods ranging from candles, smelly soaps to personalised mugs, photo-frames and much more. She invested her ‘test the market’ grant in equipment, advertising, products and website for her business. The money she made from her very first stall has been re-invested back into other trade sales.
Laura told us that having the market stalls on each campus is a beneficial marketing tool. Most students and lecturers should make use of them for any charity, fund-raising or enterprise activities. Laura took the opportunity to trade at all West College Scotland campuses, to build clientele and become confident at trading. Her advice for any other individual, who is thinking about starting a business, is to use the stalls,
at least there isn’t a cost involved to hire them. I would strongly encourage them to make use of them in every way as possible. It’s a great way to test the market – put your name out there and build a strong network and clientele!

She also mentioned that having a website for online sales is something also to consider, as well as trading at the market stalls. Build awareness and promote yourself using free social media channels, such as Facebook, Twitter and a professional account with LinkedIn.
laura3

Bridge 2 Business also encouraged her to sell goods via Etsy, which is an e-commerce website selling handmade or vintage goods. Training was provided to Laura, to get her through the different stages of setting up an account and getting started!
Laura has now officially finished and left college, but she will continue to keep in touch with the Bridge 2 Business team for help and support. Use the market stalls and will be involved in the bridge 2 business trading/enterprise events and competitions in the future.
Laura finished off her interview by mentioning that she still has a long way to go, but with Bridge 2 Business’ help she can make her dream become to reality very soon!

Saira Javed

Over a month ago, local hero Saira Javed, was overwhelmed when a West College Scotland photography student from Paisley Campus volunteered to support her in a charity project.

HND Photography student Deanna Barrie, supported Saira by providing fantastic images, designed slideshows and recorded short video clips at the Crookston Community Charity Event which was organised for over 500 guests. Deanna took responsibility and used her initiative on all the tasks and delivered professionally at the event. She spent over a month working with the entrepreneur to make sure all images, slideshows and video clip covered the criterion that was expected from her.

Deanna said it was an interesting and challenging project and it was a great opportunity to work with Saira, who gave her an insight of what day-to-day life was like for an entrepreneur. Deanna is a young business start up, in the photography industry and by working with other experienced entrepreneurs like Saira, has certainly opened up doors for other opportunities in the future related to photography. Deanna will continue to work with Saira over the next few months, on projects related to fashion and event photography.

Saira talks about her experience with Bridge 2 Business: “Over the last year or so Bridge 2 Business has been so helpful, by giving me fantastic opportunities to do guest speaking at enterprise events, classroom workshops and now small projects were I can work and mentor students on a 1-2-1 basis to help them gain experience – it’s been one interesting project after the other. I was introduced to Deanna through Bridge 2 Business and I’m so grateful that I will be able to work with Deanna and possibly look forward to working with more students’ in the near future on interesting enterprising projects!
