  • The understanding and awareness of important factors that this ‘new way of doing business’ will directly affect you within the education system, and the changes the growth of social enterprise activity is having within government agenda’s, our society and the economy
  • New ideas and methods to engage your young people in positive enterprise activity, which can be used towards assessment criteria and additional subjects such as national diplomas, citizenship, widening participation, careers development and enterprise.
