The School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee, established by serial social entrepreneur Michael Young. The School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) began in 1997 with the aim of transforming social entrepreneurs’ potential and enabling their projects to make a real difference in their communities. SSE supports social entrepreneurs who are working on a ‘live’ social project, through long and short duration ‘action learning’ programme, consisting of action learning sets, study sessions, expert witnesses, project visits and individual tutoring and mentoring. SSE’s mission is to address inequalities and social exclusion by supporting social entrepreneurs from all backgrounds to transform their talent into real social outcomes, in the form of sustainable solutions to poverty and disadvantage in communities. It does this through the use of action learning-based programmes of personal and organisational development. SSE’s core activity is a long duration (6-12 month), action-learning programme of personal and organisational development involving a number of different elements. This provides personalised and tailored support to social entrepreneurs, from a wide and diverse range of backgrounds, who are establishing and leading new mission-driven organisations. In addition to the original London School, based originally at Bethnal Green now of London Bridge, SSE has developed a Network of Associate Schools (a social franchise) Currently the SSE network operates 9 schools working in over 14 locations concurrently around the world.
