Social Enterprise Academy and Emerald Works partner to support social change leaders during COVID-19 and beyond
During the COVID-19 response and recovery period, third sector intermediary groups and their members across Scotland will also have access to the toolkit.

Both organizations have a shared purpose to provide learning opportunities that bring about real change for individuals, organizations and communities to achieve social impact.

 
A new partnership has been announced between Emerald Works, part of the Emerald Group, and the Social Enterprise Academy to help social change leaders develop the key skills they need to thrive in a post-COVID world.


Through this three-year partnership, Social Enterprise Academy learners will have free access to Emerald Works’ award-winning Mind Tools digital toolkit of over 2000 curated resources covering topics in leadership and strategy, managing people and teams, and personal effectiveness. These how-to guides, self-assessments, videos, articles, and top tips will also be integrated with the Academy’s new online learning platform, to help them put their learning into practice alongside their online or in-the-room Academy learning programme.

During the COVID-19 response and recovery period, third sector intermediary groups and their members across Scotland will also have free access to the toolkit.

This partnership will bring great value to the social economy, as both organizations have a shared goal to improving leadership practice amongst its learners and clients to achieve real impact.

Emerald Works launched in January 2020, bringing together three learning organizations – GoodPractice, Towards Maturity and Mind Tools - to form one exciting company helping individuals and organizations around the world realize their full potential by using evidence-led learning solutions that work.

Emerald Works CEO, John Yates, said of the partnership: “We've admired the Social Enterprise Academy's work for a long time and we're delighted that our Mind Tools solution can be made available through them to support the third sector at this time. It's a fantastic partnership that can deliver real impact.”

Social Enterprise Academy Chief Executive, Neil McLean, said: “Throughout the COVID-19 response period, we need to be building windmills as well as shelters. That’s exactly what we’re doing through this partnership with Emerald Works - ensuring that social changemakers have access to quality learning and development that will help them develop the skills they need for this new reality. By taking time to develop crucial skills like adaptability, creativity and resilience, we’re making sure that third sector organisations in Scotland can not only weather this storm, but future crises that come their way.”
