Part 0 will provide a holistic and integrated vision for widening access to built environment careers to young people and career-changers. It is a campaign to open up space for a joined up conversation about foundational learning across the built environment, and describes a set of programmes we will be piloting over the coming years.
Our innovative, targeted interventions aimed at 13-19 year olds and career changers – from Levels 2-5 – will widen access to future-facing built environment practice, emphasising green skills, removing economic, cultural and social barriers to equity and diversity.
Part 0 will provide:
- A Ladder of Learning from Level 2 to Level 5 in built environment practice
- A Framework to bring coherence to a currently fragmented offer, offering an equitable and accessible route through to architectural and other forms of built environment education
- A Bridge to close the gap between ‘professions’ and ‘trades’, focussing on new forms of practice to enhance green skills and deliver retrofit
We currently run three Part 0 programmes:
