The Temple Bar Trust works with educational organisations, schools and colleges to encourage an interest in the environment among young students, assist those with an interest in a career in the built environment professions and encouraging greater diversity in the industry through mentoring.
Schools, colleges and education organisations are invited to contact Grant Smith, Education and Outreach Officer about visits, workshops, walks and talks aimed at student audiences. Programmes focus on the understanding of buildings, of the architecture and development of the City of London, architecture and the built environment as a career with a particular focus on how students from diverse backgrounds can access jobs in the industry. The programme is supported by the members of the Architects’ Company who can provide mentoring to those in tertiary courses.
The Trust will offer discounted space to learning managers in the City and work with the City Centre Learning Programme youth course to provide workshops for local school children. It will encourage schoolchildren from diverse communities to learn more about architecture and construction as a career and it will support students by lectures and architectural events through their architectural courses.
