Inspirational Role Models

Each term children are introduced to at least 1 or 2 influential characters which children can research further in their own time. Children are also introduced to 1 or more industry professionals at our Projects Review event at the end of the year. At this event Industry Professionals give a brief career highlight presentation to show the variety of work design can lead to.

Teamworking is an integral part of the workshops. Model making workshops are carried out in small groups and develop important teamworking, collaboration and leadership skills. Professional designers and architects work in teams due to the scale of tasks and variety of skills needed so this equips children with necessary skills for their future.

Communication skills

Communication skills are developed through visual skills, drawing, drawing techniques and graphic sensibility, written and verbal skills are developed for children's final design project presentation. Essential transferable skills for career success in any discipline.
