PACE Social Enterprise

PACE Social Enterprise is a ‘not for profit’ Enterprise with the goal of creating work experience opportunities for trainees, so that they can put into practice the new skills that they have learned at PACE.

The main goal of the Social Enterprise is to give trainees the opportunity to work in a standard work environment where timekeeping and attendance are important, where they will meet deadlines and produce high quality products.

Photos of items produced as part of the Social Enterprise programme can be viewed at the following website, put together by a recent trainee.
