The School for Social Entrepreneurs North West was launched in Liverpool in 2007 in partnership with Blackburne House, one of the country’s leading social enterprises.
To date, we have developed and delivered several intensive nine-month core programmes, including a Cultural Leadership Programme, a Transnational Programme, a Social Innovators in Health and Wellbeing Programme and the SSE’s first ever Environmental Programme. In addition, we developed and delivered several short and bespoke Associate Fellowship programmes centred on Action Learning Sets.
In 2008 we developed an innovative SSE Programme for Young People and we continue to work closely with schools across the North West region, developing and delivering bespoke programmes.
Our Alumni goes from strength to strength and we now have more than 300 Fellows and Associate Fellows of SSE North West.
