The Social Enterprise Academy, a social change organisation that helps people to use their personal strengths to build sustainable enterprises and achieve greater social impact, has responded to the latest challenges education faces in the current crises and is offering a number of online learning opportunities.
Community Champions Challenge
Our exciting new home learning activities give Scotland’s young people the opportunity to contribute to their community whilst developing their own skills and improving well-being.
Each week, teachers, parents and carers will receive a task, video, and activity sheet that supports young people to create a social enterprise to respond to issues they care about.
Young people can earn certificates for their hard work, as well as enter our Virtual Dragons’ Den for a chance to gain support from a social entrepreneur to develop their idea and win £100 seed funding to get started.

For your own professional development, we also offer an online Supporting Young People to be Community Champions CPD to provide you with ideas for exploring social issues with your young people, supporting them to take positive action within their community and develop essential skills for life, learning and work. Follow the link below to find out more about this opportunity.
The home learning activities, Dragons’ Den competition and online CPDs are all fully funded so there is no cost to schools. We are also funded to offer one to one support for individual teachers so please do get in touch with us if there’s anything at all we can do to support you and your young people – firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, we can’t wait to hear some fantastic community champion ideas and flood social media with more good news stories about young people taking positive action in their communities.
