The Level 2 Award in Preparing and Delivering a Social Enterprise Activity allows the learner to take a significant role within a group to run a mini social enterprise within a community-based market. Money raised can be donated to a social cause or reinvested in the enterprise so that it continues to provide a service that creates positive social change.
In recognition of an entrepreneurial nature, the qualification is about “learning through doing”. The qualification encourages the learner to set up a mini social enterprise to create positive social change for themselves, their peers, and/or their community.
