RIBA Advanced CPD course, Practice in the UK, is designed to give EU qualified architects a rigorous introduction to the practicalities of practicing in the UK. This course is specifically designed for EU qualified architects (covered by the Professional Qualifications Directive) who are working in the UK and who would value a course designed to give them confidence about statutory and regulatory matters.
Developed and delivered by Cass Faculty of Architecture, it will give an introduction to all aspects of working as an architect in the UK, inclucding:
- appointments and setting fees
- working with sub consultants and the wider design team
- understanding the constraints around the construction industry including planning
- appointing contractors and the different contractual options
- managing Health and Safety and risk.
It will also contain sessions on professionalism, the roles of the ARB and RIBA and an introduction to British law.
It is designed for people who have already qualified in the European Economic Area and who have a qualification covered by the Professional Qualifications Directive (2005/36/EC). The course covers some of the same ground as RIBA Part 3 course, but will not lead to accreditation as an architect, will not replace the Part 3, and will not offer a route to RIBA chartered membership for people who do not have the requisite five years of experience. It is hoped that people who do this course will want to do the Part 3 subsequently.
