Topic outline

  • Learning to Change the World

    We are once again delighted to be working in partnership with East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde council to provide young primary students with a transformative learning opportunity.  Could your social enterprise idea convince the dragons?  Come along to present your ideas, answer some questions, receive some feedback and be in with the chance to win funding.  Through doing this, young people will develop key employability skills whilst aspiring to affect ongoing social change in their communities and beyond.
