Go-Woman! Alliance CIC (GOAL) has been set up by individuals who have been working in the field of enterprise for many years to help support, develop and celebrate entrepreneurial culture.
GOAL strives to work with individuals, to provide provisions in both formal and informal learning opportunities throughout their lives, in order to foster the continuous development and improvement of the knowledge and skills needed for employment / self-employment and personal fulfilment.
Our commitment is based on Delors’ (1996) four ‘pillars’ of education for the future.
• Learning to know - mastering learning tools rather than acquisition of structured knowledge.
• Learning to do – equipping people for the types of work needed now and in the future including innovation and adaptation of learning to future work environments.
• Learning to live together, and with others – peacefully resolving conflict, discovering other people and their cultures, fostering community capability, individual competence and capacity, economic resilience, and social inclusion.
• Learning to be – education contributing to a person’s complete development: mind and body, intelligence, sensitivity, aesthetic appreciation and spirituality.
