In 2011 3rd Sector Futures launched an exciting new course, ideal for managers in charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises, not to mention those working in local authority or health service spin outs.

The Certificate in Higher Education: Charity & Social Enterprise Management provides an accredited route for third sector managers to acquire management skills. It consists of 6 modules:

  • Managing in the third sector
  • Marketing
  • HR Management
  • Finance
  • Social enterprise
  • Proving your impact

All of the work done on the programme contributes to organisational success as well as personal development, and delivery is online but with four face to face workshops per year in support.

83 of our students have now completed the Cert HE. Here are some of their comments:

  • "I feel way more competent than at the beginning of the course. My outlook in particular on business practise has changed."
  • "It's given me the confidence to investigate and consider a wider range of potential roles in terms of advancing my career."
  • "The course gives managers a chance to reflect on their role and think about developing their skills. The tutors have been a huge help."

The course can be completed as a stand-alone qualification, or you can progress to our BA or Foundation Degree courses in Charity and Social Enterprise Management.

We are now recruiting for cohorts starting in February 2016 (with workshops in London) and for September 2016 (with workshops in Cambridge).
