This programme explores how the principles and application of the social enterprise approach support and aligns with the values and work of CLD practitioners.
It will identify the tools, skills, mindsets and behaviours required to support communities and organisations to develop their capacity to address local problems in an enterprising way. You will learn how social enterprise approaches can complement and enhance CLD strategy.
Why take part?
As CLD practitioners working with individuals and communities, there is a great benefit in supporting communities to be more innovative and enterprising in the way they address different challenges and seize new opportunities. The social enterprise approach is a value and purpose-driven way to address local issues in a more sustainable way.
Who is it for?
Managers and Practitioners working in the fields of Community Learning and Development in Edinburgh.
