Topic outline

  • Learning to Change the World

    Social enterprise is an ethical model of business that combines the best of entrepreneurship with clear and purposeful social aims.

    The Understanding Social Enterprise (USE) CPD workshop, led by a social entrepreneur, provides a great introduction to social enterprise.  Whilst exploring examples, school staff gain an understanding of social enterprise and discover how they can support young people to develop their entrepreneurial and employability skills whilst they set up their own social enterprise.
