Social Enterprise in Education is a Continuing Career Development (CCD) course for teachers, tutors, and education practitioners working in primary, secondary, and college levels, in private and public sectors. The course imparts active learning practices that are highly engaging to help participants understand what social enterprise is, and how it provides experiential learning opportunities for young people of all ability levels.
This programme explores issues related to social enterprise, entrepreneurship, leadership, and innovation strategies ranging from public policy to for-profit and non-profit management, from environmental stewardship to business ethics. Upon successful participation in this programme, the programme  will enable student to deliver accordingly to their pupils.
The Social Enterprise in Education programme encourages participants to share their experiences, discuss challenges or issues that relate to their own circumstances, and reflect on activities already present in schools which may be linked to social enterprise. The programme helps participants develop networks, provide peer support, and share ideas of good practice.
This programme will equip education practitioners with theory regarding entrepreneurship as a model of social change, and leadership and management skills required for social enterprise organisations. It is vital that they acquire this knowledge to ensure it is effectively transferred to their wards.
