Catalyst - SSE Advanced Innovation Program


A comprehensive accelerated program for ambitious students to learn new entrepreneurial skills and immediately apply them in a hands-on industry context.

Catalyst by SSE is an accredited innovation program, bringing together elements of our Discovery and Industry Innovation Challenge for an immersive, applied learning experience like no other.

Catalyst accelerates professional development, advances sought after transferrable skills and elevates career-readiness in two four-week parts, with customised education and placement components.

The program is delivered virtually, yet builds real-world relationships and creates a genuine connection between students and industry. Facilitator-led, problem-based learning is delivered alongside a customised industry placement to put newly developed skills into practice immediately.

Along the way, participants receive personalised expert mentoring and facilitator engagement through SSE's vibrant and unique online portal. Upon completion, students can access a verified credential, which can be placed on LinkedIn and recognised by future employers and broader professional networks.
