Launch your portfolio career in 30 days

What is Catapult?

A flexible learning experience designed to coach you step-by-step towards a focused portfolio of paid work in just one month.

Why Catapult, why now?

Learn from subject matter experts, plus build a great network within our community of portfolio professionals. Do real hands-on work on your own story and plans, with small group feedback every step of the way.

Join Catapult for £395. This one-off fee gives you access to the live learning and discussions, recordings, and ongoing support after you complete the course.

How it works:

Before you jump in, week zero, we have a welcome call giving you the chance to get to grips with the course content, and to meet the team.

In week one, we run two live learning sessions and live discussion sessions so you can connect with your peers and get the most personalised support whilst you determine your monetisable skills and craft your value proposition.

From week two onwards, the recorded learning sessions allow you to delve into the modules at your own pace. The live discussions continue to keep you on track and work through any ideas or challenges. This allows for flexibility in your schedule to start implementing what you are learning whilst still having access to regular support.

5 responses to “Accelerate Your Portfolio Career – Catapult Course | The Portfolio Collective

  1. A truly fantastic, practical, hands-on course. Loved the structure and by dividing the programme into 8 clearly defined, relevant modules, how to build up a business from scratch was broken down into very easily digestable bite-sized chunks. This has given me so much more confidence to transform an idea into something concrete and give me that guided push to actually make something happen!

  2. Joining a like-minded group of people weekly with challenging but achievable objectives has been so stimulating for both my business and my limited mindset. I’m so glad to have joined this course, it’s really changed a lot for me and I know it will continue to be an amazing resource even after its finished.

  3. The Catapult course is a brilliant resource for anyone who wants to embark on a new venture. The supportive community of coaches and fellow learners combine to make an environment where you can test ideas, learn new skills and develop your niche offerings. It’s a real voyage of discovery that I would recommend to anyone who wants to start a business, big or small. It certainly helped me far more than I expected it would.

  4. The focus applied to each module helps give my business a solid foundation. All the start-up bases are covered as best as I can manage. As I test and grow my business I am using what I’ve learnt on the modules every hour of every day.
