We Are Katapult

In a world of ultra-rapid change, we need robust vocational and professional education to build a sustainable future. At Katapult, we believe that the key to building flourishing educational institutions is cultivating mutually beneficial relationships with the commercial sectors by forming public-private partnerships. We are a learning network that supports these public-private partnerships with tools and guidance so they can build robust organizations that will benefit students, educational institutions, industry and society.
