Understanding cooperative and social enterprise

This two day course provides an executive overview of the social and economic contribution of cooperative and social enterprises.

The course covers the origins and forms of social enterprise in the public, private and third sectors, and then provides opportunities to apply a social entrepreneurial perspective to practical issues.
