The Social Enterprise Academy is a social enterprise that connects changemakers with transformational learning and development. We believe in the power of learning and development to transform everyone to be agents of change.
Created in partnership with the Scottish Government in 2007, Social Enterprise Schools enables every young person to step up and create the change they want to see in the world. Our pupil-led programme challenges young people of all ages and abilities to identify the environmental or social issue they want solved and establish a business to make that change happen.
The programme supports Curriculum for Excellence, Developing the Young Workforce and Learning for Sustainability priorities and, guided by principles of compassion, inclusion and participation, builds individual confidence and wellbeing; establishes effective personal, learning and entrepreneurial skills; increases capacity for employability and enables Global Citizenship.
