European Certificate in Community Enterprise (ECCE)
SEK and our partners are really excited to be presenting the ECCE certificate to you.
The European Certificate in Community Enterprise (ECCE) is a new European-led vocational qualification developed by partners from UK, France, Spain, Sweden and Romania. During the life of the project we have combined our knowledge and experience to create a relevant, flexible and needs-driven qualification to specifically support growth across Europe's Social Economy.
Balancing the needs of clients alongside those of commercial enterprise can sometimes cause issues for organisations with a social purpose. This is a challenge, but it also creates a niche market for growth. Many Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) or Social Enterprises as they are known in the UK have potential to become quality providers of jobs, supporting by the emergence of enterprise. Some of the world's best and most successful entrepreneurs have been excluded members of society in their personal past. Using their natural entrepreneurship "street-wise" skills are used to overcome poverty & disadvantage. Many have had no entry-level qualifications that would have allowed them to access Higher Education.
You will leave this event knowing about the ECCE qualification and learning network, but you will also go away inspired about social enterprise, brimming with ideas, and buzzing from the networking opportunities from like-minded people across the UK and Europe.
We warmly welcome you to join us on this journey!
We hope you can make it!
