In short, this guide is aimed at young people with an idea who want to make the world better. This is not a manual on social enterprise nor is it designed to tell you what to do. Rather it is a resource full of information, activities, exercises and templates that UnLtd has gathered over the last 10 years working with young social entrepreneurs and we want to share some of that learning with you in the hope it will support your journey in setting up a social venture.
This document contains information for adults who are responsibile for young people who have received UnLtd awards. It contains background information about UnLtd and advice for parents and carers supporting young social entrepreneurs.
Social Sparks is for teachers introducing social enterprise to their students. The guide contains a scheme of work designed to develop skills and inspire young people, including details of 6 sessions mapped to Key Stages 3 and 4 English, Maths, Citizenship and PSHEE guidelines which also link to Business Studies. These can be delivered as separate lessons or as a drop-down day.
