OVERVIEW

Description

The School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) runs courses for individuals engaged in entrepreneurship for social or environmental benefit. Social entrepreneurs take an innovative approach to tackling social problems, creating new solutions that use business to make a difference, not just a profit. Courses at SSE are practical and non-academic- there are no exams or text books- instead students learn from their peers, build new networks and are challenged by practitioners. There is no typical student, those attending programmes come from all backgrounds and have ranged in age from 17- 74, however all are united by their passion for creating social change and a shared vision of a more equitable and just society
