Adult Continuing Education (ACE) at UCC is currently offering a Certificate/Diploma in Social Enterprise and Community Development Practice.  The application date has been extended to the 18th September, 2015. Social Enterprises combined with Community Development practices present a perfect model for community groups to insure their sustainability into the future while at the same time, create employment, fuel local economies and deliver services, all of which help to invigorate and empower local communities and initiatives.  Social Enterprises also have the potential to keep local people at the helm of the decision making process. If you are interested in such a programme, please feel free to contact me.  For further information, you may also log on to:   social-enterprises-and-community-A4
