TAFE NSW students Angeline Ong and Michael Denholm, are among the first cohort of budding entrepreneurs to complete The Navigator unit at Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE).
The Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE) is a partnership between all 11 NSW universities and TAFE NSW. SSE brings together highly motivated students from a range of backgrounds, disciplines and locations across NSW to collaborate and innovate.
The pilot unit saw students from across the state take part in online and face-to-face study, where students gained a deepened understanding of the entrepreneurial mindset. Mapping the entrepreneurial ecosystem through the Massive Ecosystem Scavenger Hunt (MESH) enabled students to understand the Sydney start-up community through experiential learning, an innovative approach used at SSE.
SSE CEO Nick Kaye said, “This first cohort has attracted students from all 12 of our member higher education institutions and it’s been inspirational to see such diverse and talented students from right across the state.
“Our students represent a variety of disciplines including medicine, botany, engineering, design, law and technology to name a few. With a thirst to learn and support one another, they have been a true reflection of SSE and our value in cross-disciplinary learning,” said Kaye.
When fully operational, at least 1,000 students each year will participate in SSE courses and activities during their degree or TAFE program, with many more taking part in a program of co-curricular activities including workshops, hackathons, educational boot camps and networking events.
