  • Identify key skills, attributes and personal qualities of a social entrepreneur

This Introduction to Social Enterprise session is a stepping stone onto taking part in Social Enterprise Schools with a group / class of young people. Should teachers wish to take part in Social Enterprise Schools with a group / class of young people, you can do so via DYW Live in January:

Social Enterprise Schools – An 8-week block where learners will develop their own social enterprise, culminating with an online Dragons' Den via DYW Live (January to March).

DYW Context:
Looking at skills and personal qualities, young people have the opportunity to identify what it takes to be a social entrepreneur, make decisions about the running of a social enterprise and then be able to reflect upon their skills and attributes to consider - 'Who do you want to be?'

Through taking part in Social Enterprise Schools, young people through the experience of setting up and running a social enterprise develop key employability and enterprising skills.

Additional Requirements:
Webcam and microphone required for whole class delivery and participation.

Other Info:
Those who set up and run a social enterprise they may be eligible for an Award at our Annual Social Enterprise Academy Awards in June 2023.
