RIBA Student Mentoring launched in the East Midlands
RIBA wants to ensure that the next generation of architects is supported to drive the profession forward and that students are able to learn from the best. 55 architects from 34 RIBA Chartered Practices in the East Midlands are joining the Student Mentoring programme this term. We are extremely grateful to all of them.
The 2018-19 programme was launched in October for the current academic year, resulting in places for 110 architecture students at the four RIBA-validated Schools of Architecture in the region: the University of Lincoln; Leicester School of Architecture, De Montfort University; Nottingham Trent University; and the University of Nottingham.
During the Meet and Greet evenings at the Nottingham Schools, mentor Chris Perkins, Director at CBP architects, and Natasha Ani, former mentee from the same practice and RIBA student ambassador, shared their experiences and the benefits they got from the scheme. It was an inspiring story, especially for the nine new mentors joining us this year in Nottingham.
