Training Event

Micro Enterprise & Social Care Training Course

DSEN have been working with a number of individuals and organisations who have been developing enterprises in the field of health & wellbeing.  We have developed a specific learning programme, in response to their feedback about some of the particular challenges and opportunities that they face in taking forward these enterprises.  This programme will be delivered by a tutor with extensive experience of developing enterprises in this sector and we will also have input from other organisations who will share their expertise in health & social care enterprise development.The course will have an emphasis on the Social Enterprise model, but we will also be fully exploring other business model that people may adopt, such as becoming a sole trader.The course will run over 6 days in May and June. We also have organised a couple of introductory sessions on 19 April 2016 to allow people to find out more about what the course can offer and would encourage people who are interested to come along to one of these. 

See attached flyer with more details of the programme and please contact if you would like any further information about this opportunity.
