Institute appeals for architects to go into schools

The RIBA is launching England’s first nationwide architecture programme for schools.

After a three-year pilot it announced it would roll out the scheme across England – with Wales next in its sight-lines.

The pilot was delivered in more than 200 primary, secondary and special needs schools by 349 so-called “architecture ambassadors” from 170 practices. They reached more than 18,000 young people.

Now the RIBA is appealing for hundreds more architects around the country to sign up, as well as for schools to get in touch.
