About the Project

The SocialB project aims to stimulate changes in HEI curricula & VET training programmes with its innovative, multidisciplinary model of collaboration between HEIs, VET providers, Social Enterprises and Social Enterprise development and support agencies.  It is envisaged that the Learning Unit materials and methodologies will form the basis of a common EU-wide, HEI/VET approach to education and training in the SE field.  They may be adapted in full or partially and are aimed at real problem-based learning and skills acquisition in the field of social entrepreneurship.

The Social Enterprise Symposium will be on Friday November 18th from 9-2 and will include a networking lunch.
