Event Date: 
27 October 2020
Description - please include timings of event or note if all day.: 
Join us for our Bi- Weekly members Zoom @ Noon Call This week, as well as providing useful updates on the sector, we are delighted to be joined by Belfast Metropolitan College Belfast Business School, (BMC). As part of the Business School’s Award in Employability and Professional Development Skills qualification, the College have built social enterprise into their programme. As part of this initiative, a student will be required to spend time with a social enterprise, and enjoy hands on work experience, spending placement hours with a social enterprise every Friday, commencing February 2021. This is our second year partnering with BMC. Last year, 18 Social Enterprise Organisations took the opportunity to get involved along with over 20 students. It proved hugely beneficial to both sides and those who attended our Conference in March this year will have heard of the benefit of this work from all parties, lecturers, students and social enterprises. All told of the huge success of the scheme. We are therefore delighted that Belfast Met have expressed the desire to join forces again this year. We will also hear from Brenda McCracken of our members Orchardville who were one of the members involved last year. Brenda will be able to provide some background from an organisation’s perspective to the impact of the scheme. Please come along and hear more details of how this scheme operates and also to listen to those who were involved last year. This is a great opportunity for an additional resource at no cost to you. Young people are very keen to understand the social enterprise business model and feedback from them last year was fantastic. We are keen as a representative body for the sector that we provide these opportunities for the students. Please register your attendance on the link below.
