Workshops and Courses

ACRE offers workshops and guided learning opportunities for communities and organisations who want to build sustainable enterprises and achieve greater social impact.

Through our partnerships with Scotland’s Social Enterprise Academy and Canada’s Social Enterprise Institute we can bring contemporary resources and global connections to your community or workplace wherever you are based.

Not sure where to start?

We get it ! Working out what learning you really need, and which program will be right for you can be hard. We’re available for a quick chat to help you work out which one is the best place to start.

Our approach

As a starting point, ACRE works with your community group, organisation or business to understand the needs and capacity of learners and identify any specific cultural requirements.

We then co-design guided learning programs that are underpinned by a curated bundle of learning modules that participants can complete in their own time. We offer you the opportunity to join virtually facilitated discussions to:

  • share insights, learnings and questions as a group
  • explore takeaway actions for participants to apply to their idea / project / business
  • identify opportunities to implement learnings promote peer to peer learning
  • provide opportunities for active networking

The workshops we offer focus on core social enterprise concepts, such as:

  • Introduction to social enterprise
  • Exploring your leadership styles
  • Ideation
  • Design thinking
  • Social Impact

We host webinars and can offer participants access to additional one-on-one support via virtual ‘Open Door’ sessions.
