RIBA offers refresher courses for architects

  • Comment
The RIBA has teamed up with the London Metropolitan University to offer architects returning to the profession an intensive week-long course to brush up on their skills.

The course – which will run this May – is designed to boost the confidence and technical knowledge of RIBA-qualified architects who are returning to practice after a career break.

The RIBA said the pilot ‘aims to re-engage women architects who have been on maternity leave [and is in] response to the findings of the RIBA/University of the West of England research on why women in particular leave the profession’.

Students will be given lectures on the current climate of the profession and will be updated on statutory, contractual and technical issues that may have changed in their absence. The final day and assessment will be a practical design and project planning exercise.

Jane Duncan, RIBA vice president, said: ‘The RIBA is firmly committed to improving access for all architects, enabling them to return to the profession after a career break, and this is a significant step towards that goal.’
