  • 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.

  • Positive inspiration and stimulus to use to enhance your teaching skills, and get the best out of your students by offering them of making a profit whilst making a difference: which other educators who have been on the workshop say has increased student aspirations to be successful.
