The Catalyst Close Dialog The aim of the building is to bring together the delivery of apprenticeships and skills, to meet employer demand, in flexible, high-quality, digitally enabled space. The Catalyst building will provide open, social and flexible learning spaces, emulating real world working environments and opportunities for digital engagement. The Catalyst will be a unified building, bringing together social, study, teaching and support functions. Interwoven with these, the building will also be home to the University’s apprenticeship and Business School programmes. The building will host digital and physical resources, including books and a number of special collections. The ground floor will showcase the very best that the University has to offer; a shop front speaking of quality, diversity and progressive thinking in higher education.
