Since 2009 the Dartington SSE has produced tailor-made courses designed to provide an intensive complete package to meet the needs of the new social entrepreneur, plus to help existing businesses expand their social entrepreneurial side.
The Dartington School for Social Entrepreneurs is located within the stunning setting of Dartington Hall. We run many of our course sessions from here but also from locations all around the South West. We continue to strive to give our students as much variety as possible, whilst also taking advantage of the vast array of business resources that we have in Devon.
Dartington Hall was founded by Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst in the 1920's as an experiment for rural generation. They believed in trying new innovative approaches to farming, education and the arts - a philosophy that continues to this day.
The charity now has three main areas of expertise:
The Arts - the estate continues to hold regular exhibitions, festivals and events for a full arts programme,
Sustainability - the world renowned Schumacher College continues to lead the way in environmental, sustainable and social education and
Social Justice - the department that aims to build capacity for fairness, for people to reach their full potential, and that lead the way for social change.
The Dartington School for Social Entrepreneurs is proud to be part of this innovative programme.
