1st Community Interest Company for education

EduJam - 3rd December 2006

Edujam cic is the first community interest company dedicated to learners, parents and teachers, to serve education.

A cic is a new social enterprise, resulting from government legislation passed in July 2005. A cic combines a company model with a simple test of community benefit and a transparent mechanism to lock sale of assets. This enables edujam to trade and grow just like any other company, without being dependant upon grant funding. This ensures innovation, best value, and sustainability, but with any surplus invested back into development or sponsorship to directly benefit our growing community.

A cic therefore is a new legal framework ideally suited to a community development dedicated to the needs of learners, parents and educators.
