Student visit to Carlisle

Students on the BSc (Hons) Social Enterprise Leadership programme are currently preparing for a visit to Carlisle for a day of activity organised by Common Purpose UK. They will meet at Carlisle City Council Offices for a briefing before heading off for visits to Carlisle Airport, Cumbria CVS or within the City Council. After exchanging experiences on their visits and reflecting upon the leadership they have seen at each venue they will sit down to 'cafe conversations' with Andy Beeforth, Chief Executive, Cumbria Community Foundation , Nigel Catterson, Chair, Britain’s Energy Coast  & Jason Gooding, Chief Executive, Carlisle City Council.

Common Purpose was founded in 1989 as a not-for-profit social enterprise and is an independent, international leadership development organisation. They provide people from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors with the inspiration, skills and connections to become better leaders at work and in society. Common Purpose develop an ability to work together, innovate and to thrive in different cultures - this helps people, organisations, cities and regions to succeed. Our students are privileged to have the opportunity to work with Common Purpose as part of the module delivery team and engage in a number of inspirational days with them over the three years of the award.
