  • Learning to Change the World

    We are delighted to once again offer young people in Gaelic Medium Education (primary and secondary) the opportunity to experience setting up a real-life social enterprise and make the change they want to see in their communities and beyond! Could your school convince the dragons to invest in your idea?  Join our session on 19 September to learn more, submit a business plan and a video pitch before 27 November, and on 5 December join the Dragons via TEAMS to receive feedback and be in with the chance to win seed funding!

    • How to register?

      This exciting event is part of our fully funded Social Enterprise Schools programme and open to all schools delivering Gaelic Medium Education across Scotland. If you would like to be involved, please click "register your school" below to email Joan Beaton - Education Programme Co-ordinator (North, Highlands & Islands) with details of your school and/or your class and we will be in touch with more information about the programme. Once registered we'll arrange for one of our inspiring team of social entrepreneurs (Gaelic speakers) to visit your young people with a Social Enterprise Schools workshop and help spark their ideas!  We will provide materials and templates and teachers will have the support of a Co-ordinator throughout.

    • What do I do now?

      We'll be in touch to provide more information and to schedule your pupil workshop. 

      If you haven’t already, you might find it useful to go to our Learning Platform and create your account.  You will then have the option to sign into Social Enterprise Schools, explore further resources, see example business plans and much more.
