Social Enterprise Academy profile:

We are a social change organisation:  we exist to support people who are stepping forward to affect positive social change, wherever they may be. We exist to support the many, not the few. 

In many social change contexts, people assume that if one is provided with business advice and investment, social entrepreneurship will emerge.  We believe that there is a third element – equally important - the provision of transformational learning and development.   Our learning programmes focus on the development of practice:  the practice of leadership and the practice of entrepreneurship.  We support people to turn up as their best selves. 

With a 16 year track record of successful delivery in Scotland, the Social Enterprise Academy has been sharing its business and learning delivery models for the past 7 years with international partners through a social licence approach.
