Startup Success
Startup Success

Startup Success is a series of six learning modules that directly address the following skill gaps; analysing, developing and testing a business idea, establishing a business, accessing/growing customers, accessing capital, managing finances, identifying regulatory barriers and presentation skills required to network and market a business. 

The format of delivery is flexible in methods of delivery and provides students with the opportunity to develop a customisable learning journey based on their own identified skills gaps and areas of interest. Startup Success runs as a 3 day live work shop or online over a 6-week period (24 learning hours in total).

Upon completing each of the assessed microcredentials, participants receive an authorised digital SSE badge issued by Credly. The badge can be shared via their social media profiles (SSE recommends LinkedIn). Aligned with the National Microcredentials Framework (NMF), SSE microcredential badges are a certification of an assessed learning module that is outcome-based, driven by industry need, tailored to support lifelong learning, and transparent and accessible. Verifiable micro-skills are embedded into the digital badge as part of its meta-data and are accessible to employers seeking candidates with the relevant skills.
