We all learn in different ways, and Just Enterprise aims to provide you with a range of learning options which lets you access the right kind of business support for you.
You can have your support in person through our group workshops and one-to-one sessions with our own expert business advisers. If time is tight, or you prefer online learning, you can register for our webinars, download some of the digital resources from our online bank of material or read case studies of other social entrepreneurs.
All of the social enterprise support we provide is fully funded and comes free of charge, with the exception of some of our longer-term leadership programmes. The latter are priced competitively to offer excellent value for money and significant leadership learning.
One to one
Our specialist advisers are the best in the business. Each one of us already works for a third sector organisation, so we really understand the challenges and opportunities which come from balancing social impact with income generation. Our track record speaks for itself – we’ve been providing one-to-one business advice to social enterprises and enterprising charities for more than 8 years, and we’re delighted to receive consistently high feedback.
Our workshops provide a tremendous learning environment for groups of social entrepreneurs. Not only will you learn new business skills in a supportive setting, but you’ll also have the chance to meet and share experiences with others in the social enterprise sector. Workshops are run right across Scotland, usually over half or full days, and cover an entire spectrum of useful learning to help you develop your ideas or your existing business.
If taking a day out from business is too big an ask, you can sign up to receive some of your learning digitally from our new a range of webinars, coming in 2019. These will include pre-recorded e-learning sessions which come accompanied with downloadable resources you can study at your own pace. We’ll also host live themed webinars with a Q+A session built in to help you get the answers you need for your own social enterprise situation. Online content will be added to our website throughout the Autumn.
Our online digital learning offering will be complemented over the coming months. We are building a bank of downloadable resources which you’ll be able to access in your own time and when you need extra information about a particular area of business development.
There’s nothing quite like learning how others have tackled challenges or embraced business opportunities. Our library of case studies introduce you to the real life experiences of other social enterprises doing work with a heart. We’re sure you’ll be inspired and motivated by each of these stories – and you’ll discover that you’re certainly not alone when it comes to the highs and lows of running a business.
