What is Social Enterprise Schools

Innovated in partnership with The Scottish Government, Social Enterprise Schools enables every young person to step up, realise their potential, and create the change they want to see in the world.

By giving young people a real-life experience of running their own social enterprise in school, this fully-funded programme delivers transformational learning which impacts both them and their community.

How is it delivered?

Social Enterprise Schools can begin in your school at any time throughout the year. Recognising that every school is unique and each one at a different stage in their enterprise journey, we provide the support you need to develop a pupil-led enterprise and celebrate its success!
