The IAF has announced a new National Architects in Schools Initiative.
Devised and delivered by the Irish Architecture Foundation, this new initiative will provide students with first-hand experience of the design process under the guidance of design professionals.
The National Architects in Schools Initiative is co-funded by the Arts Council, Department of Education and Skills and the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht under the Government Policy on Architecture implementation programme 2013.
Architects and architecture graduates will engage Transition Year students in hands-on design projects and collaborate with teachers to maximise cross-curricular learning within the second-level school syllabus.
The IAF will work in partnership with members of the national network of the Association of Teachers’ Education Centre’s (ATECI). 5 Education Centres in Cork, Donegal, Drumcondra, Galway and Wexford are central to this two-year initiative and will work closely with the IAF to train and resource both architects and teachers.
The application process for architects/architecture graduates is now open. Deadline July 31st.
