Over forty community groups have benefited from training by Bournville College,  most notably in children’s centres, day centres, charities and schools. 447 learners completed courses in a variety of subjects, including IT, Art, Cooking, Assertion and Stress Management, Understanding Teenagers, Community Volunteers, Helping out in School and many more. All of these courses have been organised to meet the needs of the local community and many learners have since progressed to the College, achieving nationally recognised qualifications. The College also works closely with Job Centre Plus and Birmingham City Council Employment and Access Team to deliver programmes for recently redundant, short and long-term unemployed candidates.

The University of Warwick is working to develop and grow social entrepreneurship and is encouraging both its students and staff to give their innovative ideas a go.  In 2012, two new social enterprises were launched following successful applications to the Warwick SU Ernst & Young Social Enterprise Project and this year the University has launched the Warwick Social Enterprise Award scheme, in partnership with UnLtd.  These awards are available to help staff, students and recent graduates to kick-start a socially enterprising idea and we are delighted to have supported six new projects already.
