RIBA/ARB schools validation still faces further obstacles

  • Comment

RIBA chief executive Richard Hastilow has admitted there is still some way to go in negotiations with the ARB over schools validation. Hastilow said there were 'challenges' to be overcome as a result of the 'strict requirements' of the ARB, the RIBA and the schools.

He added that while clear progress had been made towards a joint set of validation criteria, other areas under discussion were 'more challenging'.

'If we are going to come up with a better process that wouldn't be a tiny thing to do. If we are going to make a significant change, that's quite a challenge, 'Hastilow said.

And while the two parties were working 'quietly' towards an agreement he refused to speculate about when this might be achieved.
