The Social Enterprise Academy is a social business set up in 2004, to design and deliver transformational learning and development for people and organisations working for social purpose across Scotland. ,,Our vision is of a society which combines economic activity with community benefit, a society led by dynamic social entrepreneurs. ,,The companys objects are to advance education, particularly in the field of leadership, which is relevant to social entrepreneurs and those involved in social enterprises.,,In response to demand, and with an ethos of sharing the impact of our work in areas that most need support, the Academy is in the process of expanding its activities internationally. Creating national and international partnerships, the Academy aims to share the model, experience and learners it has developed in Scotland, with social entrepreneurs in other nations, and learn from them in return. Working with our main partner in Africa, Imani Enterprises / Imani Development Foundation, we became aware of the need of agribusiness leaders for leadership and enterprise development, and also the potential appropriateness of our approach to learning and development in Malawi. Building on our initial work in South Africa, we are keen to run programmes in Malawi.,
