Abstract

Higher education is changing, and in the last decade, the sector in the UK has become more globally aware. Coupled with this is the way society is changing. Traditionally, the bedrock of society would influence the public and private sectors. Today, however, there is a greater emphasis from the third sector (i.e. charities, social enterprise and voluntary sector organisations). Since the era of the New Labour government, policy has become more reliant on the third sector. In many quarters of government, the third sector is seen as the solution to many of society’s problems. The aim of this chapter is to explore the relationship between higher education and the social enterprise aspect of the third sector, and to present best
practice ideas.
