Topic - Freelance instruction work with an SPA?

teh_mark - on 02 Mar 2013
I'm currently self-employed as a lighting designer and production electrician for the entertainment industry. While I have enough work to scrape by usually, I have a lot of spare time and often find myself sitting on my rear end twiddling my thumbs for days or weeks at a time. I'm thinking of a few ways to put my spare time to better use and earn some money.

One plan which crossed my mind was potentially to move to somewhere in the country, become an SPA and do some freelance instructing as a 'side job'. I can't stand large cities and would much prefer to live somewhere more rural in the South West, but I'd be hard pressed to justify the petrol money if all my work was still in London. Unfortunately I can't find any real statistics for this sort of work - unsurprisingly - so I was hoping someone might be able to shed some light on the situation for me. Is it likely to be worth it? Is there actually work out there for people only holding an SPA (or similar) during the summer, in somewhere in the South West (at least enough to cover the outlay on the qualification and equipment)? Am I stupid for even considering the idea?
