Join the Knoei Colab

Knoei Colab

This guest article was written by Amanda Cole from Knoei.

As we near the end of this year, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the incredible journey we’ve been on here at Knoei Colab. Our aim is to transform and innovate education through peer-based learning, and to embed future thinking and practical business skills for the leaders of the future. At the heart of our work lies a commitment to nurturing the next generation, and judging by feedback from our students, we think we’re right on the mark!

“I joined the Colab because I was really interested in entrepreneurship and starting my own businesses. It seemed like the perfect opportunity when I was presented it because I could complete it whilst I’m in school, its very affordable and would give me ATAR and pathway into university with real, useful knowledge. I have gotten a lot out of the Colab and I can’t wait for when we prototype and hopefully bring our product to market.”

Knoei Colab

Our Diploma of Entrepreneurship and Innovation is an innovation incubator designed to unlock your potential. The Knoei Colab offers a unique project-based learning experience that embeds the skills you need as an aspiring entrepreneur or innovator. It is designed to suit all learning styles with facilitator-led content that engages and builds curiosity.

Knoei’s project-based learning approach ensures you learn as much from your fellow students as you do from industry experts and partners, mentors and other next generation innovators. The Diploma of Entrepreneurship and Innovation isn’t just a qualification; it’s a gateway to a world of possibilities, offering university pathways, industry connections and practical skills to succeed, no matter which path you choose to follow.

The Knoei Colab Diploma is available as both an in-school and after school option and is completed during the school term over 18 months.

“I joined the Colab to expand my knowledge about entrepreneurship and starting a small business. It’s so much more fun than school, and I’ve made great new friends and connections.”

– Tahina, Hillcrest Christian College

Knoei Year 13 Plus

In 2024 we’ve also introduced a new program, Knoei Year 13 Plus, aimed at school leavers aged 18-24. It covers the same engaging content as the Knoei Colab, but with accelerated learning so you can complete the Diploma in just 11 months while you work. The weekly content is delivered virtually and has opportunities for face to face events like our hackathon and working with industry mentors. There is no other VET qualification that supports you to start your business, while teaching practical skills for a successful startup.

No idea what business you want to start? We have you covered with our Hackathon where students are inspired to come up with world changing business ideas they are truly passionate about. Knoei Year 13 Plus students and alumni also have access to partner awards programs, innovation festivals and incubators to facilitate your upward trajectory even when you finish.

Knoei Year 13 Plus is a platform for your personal and professional growth, providing essential skills and connections for the post-high school journey. And by snagging the Diploma, you’re not just fast-tracking your way into uni with a solid selection rank, you’re also building industry connections and lining up potential job opportunities…a triple win! Some of our pathway universities even offer up to 8 units as credit or recognised prior learning, decreasing the overall cost and time of your degree.
