International Network, Local Hubs

Every Hub is co-developed with a partner embedded in the local community and social enterprise ecosystem.

We work closely with partners to develop a local Tutor network of social entrepeneurs and specialists able to deliver learning programmes in their communities.

New programmes and innovations developed by local Hubs are shared back across the network and to Scotland.
