Somerset Social Entrepreneurs Programme 2018

Social ventures and ethical businesses often rely on subsidy grants and a lot of good will. Competition for grants, donations and resources is steadily increasing. Against this background, and building on the success of the 2014-2017 programmes, the Somerset Social Entrepreneurs Programme 2018 will provide a tailor-made programme for social venture leaders to help them capitalise on new opportunities, markets and improve financial sustainability.

The Somerset Social Entrepreneurs Programme 2018, run by Dartington School for Social Entrepreneurs, is a 9-day action learning programme over four months, allowing and encouraging participants to implement changes between sessions and providing time and space to reflect on their learning. The programme will consist of a blend of modes of delivery and learning methods for personal and organisational development. These will include: day-long intensive study sessions, interactive webinars, workshops, action learning sets, and business review sessions where you will be looking at your organisations specific challenges and opportunities with the support of experts.

There are nine dates between 7th February and 16th May.

Places on this course are part funded by the Enhance Social Enterprise Programme, which is supported by the European Regional Development Fund.

The programme is aimed at people who are living/or operating in Somerset and will be delivered in Somerset
