Social Enterprise in Schools

'Social Enterprise in Schools' is a collaborative, hands-on experience giving young people opportunities to run a business

Working with specially-trained local entrepreneurs pupils set up and manage their own social enterprise - a business with a social purpose.

Teachers also benefit from specialist workshops, support and resources to bring entrepreneurship to life in the classroom.

Most of all it builds skills, confidence and links with the community (and it's fun)
