The focus of the next three years will be on programmes: through our next period of growth and development, we will emerge poised to take advantage of a new regulatory and policy landscape in further and higher education as well as the built environment sector, creating radically more affordable and accessible routes to practice in development, design, and construction. 

We will engage learners through new platforms and evidence-based teaching, offering a lifetime of opportunity and creative stimulus. By 2024, we will offer learning experiences across three programmes: 

Part 2

Scaled, Strengthened and Sustainable, delivering value for money for our students, producing graduates armed with the tools for changing practice. 

Part 0

Supporting Fair Access and Participation, Deepening Social Value – delivering on our outreach agenda with programmes aimed at 13-19 year olds and career changers, supporting practice in adding to the social value of development, and focussing on Green Skills. 

Part 4

Practice is changing but the current CPD landscape is holding us back from addressing the multiple challenges facing our sector.

Our response is Part 4: a programme of affordable, modular, design-led courses for professional practitioners.

We are an independent Higher Education Provider – we define our programme and our teaching, and we are registered with the Office for Students (OfS). Our Part 2 programme is validated by our Academic Partner, the University of Liverpool, who award our graduates with a MArch in Designing Architecture. The LSA is professionally recognised at Part 2 level by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

Part 2 is core to what we do. But as these pages show, we are developing our Outreach, Access and Participation work under Part 0, and launching part-time short courses aimed at professional practice under Part 4.
