Social Enterprise in Education

Social enterprise is a dynamic business model, a business that reinvests its’ profits for community benefit.  With over 5,600 social enterprises operating in Scotland today, it is our fastest growing sector.

The Social Enterprise Academy’s acclaimed Social Enterprise in Education programme is being delivered to young people throughout Highlands and Islands, providing them with an opportunity to run a sustainable social enterprise whilst making a positive difference to themselves and the issues that matter to them.

The Social Enterprise in Education programme is free to schools and colleges and gives students hands-on experience of running a business and, by building on strengths and confidence, it also develops students as responsible citizens with more understanding of social justice and community.
