A social enterprise, simply harnessing business skills and markets to achieve social and/or environmental objectives.

What social enterprises have in common is a commitment to generating most of their income by selling goods and services, rather than through grants and donations, and reinvesting their profits in their social mission.In recent years, there has been a rapid increase in the number of social enterprises and these contribute to the economy and employ more people.

This surge in the number of social enterprises is thought to have come about as a solution to deep-rooted social, economic, and environmental problems that are otherwise being ignored. It is therefore vital that schools and teachers are aware of the importance of social enterprises, and that they introduce the idea to young people early on. Learning about social enterprise builds on skills from enterprise, but takes a broader look. It can encourage young people to question the existing norms and imagine a different world. This can appeal to young people, who often have a natural sense of justice, fairness and inclusion.


The Social Enterprise Academy - Centre of Excellence for Social Enterprise Teaching and Learning will provide a range of resources including access to their team and tutors (who are all social entrepreneurs).
