Want to get back into architecture after a career break? New in September, the RIBA/London Metropolitan University Returners' Course is aimed at qualified architects who have taken a break from the profession. ASD Projects, an architectural consultancy unit at London Met's Department of Architecture and Spatial Design, will manage the course.
Developed partly in response to research by the RIBA/ University of the West of England into why women leave architecture, the course will have strong links with architectural practices and the construction industry, and will include a live case study as a way for students to understand current procurement and building processes. The course is intended to provide skills and build confidence, as well as a peer group to support graduates returning to work. Log on to www. riba-cpd. com or email a. markey@londonmet. ac. uk
