We are proud to share that 3 members of the team will be taking part in the RIBA Future Architects Student Mentoring Programme for the 2020/21 period!
As mentors, they will be supporting a number students, preparing them for the reality of working in a Practice during their work placement.
From the GSS team, Simon Rennison-Rae will be supporting students from Newcastle University’s School of Architecture, whilst Tom Jagger and Chris Ryder will be supporting students from the University of Nottingham and the University of Portsmouth respectively.
Through a number of sessions, the students will be guided in order to update and improve their CV and portfolio, as well as an in depth look at the RIBA plan or work. With their mentors, the students will also be able to experience a day in the life of an architect, hopefully being able to visit one of our live construction sites in order to get an overview of everything that the job involves.
As a Practice we are delighted to once again be able to support the next generation of architects through their studies and in to the working environment. Keep an eye on our website for more information on the various initiatives that GSS are involved with, alongside updates on how we are supporting the various student members of the GSS team.
