The Wheel: Free Training for Social Enterprise Workers

Over the past year, alongside Erasmus+ project partners, The Wheel has developed a training programme for long established social enterprise organisations. Long established refers to those organisations who have moved beyond the startup phase and have been in operation for 5-7 years or more. Our aim is to support you and your organisation to review and revitalize your social mission and business model. We’re now ready to pilot this innovative programme and want you to take part!
