Help from the School for Social EntrepreneursApril 24th, 2012 0 Comments
The School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) provides a structured training programme “that enables people to use their creative and entrepreneurial abilities more fully for social benefit. SSE supports individuals to set up new charities, social enterprises and social businesses across the UK.
The School for Social Entrepreneurs runs practical learning programmes aimed at helping develop the individual entrepreneur and their organisation simultaneously: our approach, and belief, is that social change is people-powered, and that the most valuable assets and resources we have are human ones.
Each programme combines specific elements designed to provide an intensive, complete package of support that meets the needs of social entrepreneurs. This person-centred approach has been independently proven to create sustainable, thriving organisations that provide significant, lasting social and economic impact.”
In their Impact Evaluation Report 2011, SEE suggests that their graduates’ enterprises “are 20% more likely to survive for five years than the average UK business”.
A School for Transition Entrepreneurs?
The REconomy team is currently working with the Devon-based part of SSE to explore a new School for Transition Entrepreneurs (STE) course. This will go beyond ‘regular’ social enterprise, and will help embed the principles of a Transition Enterprise into a new business model from the outset. More information will be made available here as things progress. Meanwhile SSE offers a range of course options under their regular scheme in a growing range of locations around the UK.
