School for Social Entrepreneurs opens Devon branch

Training course will begin in January

The School for Social Entrepreneurs is opening a new branch of its network of social enterprise training facilities in Dartington, Devon.

It has been funded by a group of local charities, led by the Dartington Hall Trust, which has matched a grant from the Office of the Third Sector.

The school will provide 40 days of training tailored to individual students, including one-to-one help from experienced social entrepreneurs, and the first programme will start in January 2010.

The first set of up to 20 students is being sought. Prospective students must be from the Devon area and be working on an idea for a social enterprise at least three days a week. Applications close in November.

The new school is the 11th opened under the School for Social Entrepreneurs banner, following on the heels of the school's first foreign venture, in Australia.
