Certificate of Higher Education (Cert HE) in Social Enterprise Management - Carmarthen Business School
“I decided to study Social Enterprise and Management to gain knowledge to help me in my role with the social enterprise I’m involved with,” she says. “It was a huge risk for me as I didn't enjoy school when I was younger and left without any qualifications so I wasn't sure I would be able to manage or cope academically in university.
“Having said that, it was one of the best decisions I have made, and I hadn't realised until then how much I love learning. Studying at Carmarthen Business School has completely changed the way I think; it has given me so much confidence within myself and that is all down to the support that I have received from my lecturers and classmates throughout the year.”
Sandra is studying for a Certificate of Higher Education (CERT HE) in Social Enterprise Management at UWTSD, to help her social enterprise business succeed in Llandysul, Carmarthenshire.
She said the diverse group of students on her one-year-programme had influenced her thinking and her lecturers, her desire to continue her education.
“It’s an inter-generation group and hearing the thoughts of young and old has been fantastic and such a learning curve for me,” she said. “It’s definitely had an impact on the way I think and plan and structure my social enterprise. I initially enrolled because I wanted to help grow my social enterprise and my lecturer Jessica has been amazing. She has not only taught and supported us but has facilitated our learning, sharing resources, skills, and expertise, and encouraging us to push further in our work. So, I’ve now enrolled for the degree course.”
Skills for the workplace
Of the 110 students who graduated from UWTSD’s Swansea Business Campus in 2019, 70 have gone on to a degree course, while 40 of the 80 students who graduated from UWTSD’s Outreach Development Centres in Cardiff and Newport are going on to study BA degree programmes.
One such student is Jorna Ali, 43, from Cimla. She had to leave education when she was younger as she had to care for her own children and for her brothers and sisters after her mother died.
“I applied last year because my kids are older; I was looking to do something to improve my qualifications,” she says.
“The course has been a joyful experience. At the time it was a bit hard because I’d been out of education for over 25 years, but I’ve made great friends with the lecturers who helped me, and in the end I achieved my goal.”
