Understanding Social Enterprise - Day 2

The 2-day Understanding Social Enterprise programme is a useful introduction to community and social enterprise. This programme brings together individuals and organisations who would like to learn more about a socially enterprising business model and explore the characteristics, structures and opportunities for their organisation.

The two day programme focuses on the fundamentals of social enterprise; how they are unique, what challenges and opportunities they face, what support is on offer to social entrepreneurs within the sector and how to access this.

The programme also explores some of the skills, mind-set and behaviours required to lead in an enterprising and innovative way. It aims to enhance leaders’ understanding of what it means to be enterprising and how this approach can support them to achieve their organisations’ vision, mission and values.

By the end of this programme learners will have:

  • Defined the values and purpose of a social enterprise to better understand where it sits in relation to the corporate and voluntary sector.
