Centre for Capacity Building and Enterprise Development


CCBED is a Bristol based social enterprise located in the heart of St. Paul’s.  We provide a gateway into enterprise and employment for people from 19 years of age who live in areas of disadvantage and face barriers to learning and work.  Our community links are a constant priority towards building an authentic service provision and support network.  We primarily deliver courses at St Pauls Learning Centre, located in an area of high unemployment and ethnic diversity. Being placed within the community facilitates face to face engagement and we hold open-access, tutorial based surgeries that allow us to speak directly with potential learners on priorities that affect the sort of training provision they need. 

Working within this targeted neighbourhood we design accessible and responsive learning that can be delivered flexibly, to meet learner needs.  We aim to make learning experiential and our model integrates mentoring and accredited training with specialist business start-up support for aspirational entrepreneurs, and job placement support for those seeking employment.  We are an approved  SFEDI Awards Centre and IOEE Enterprise Academy covering the West of England.
