Forging links for the future

Our association with the University of Nottingham’s Department of Architecture and the Built Environment continues to grow as we forge stronger links with the students and the courses on offer.

Kaitlin Allen, our latest trainee is studying for the university’s newest degree course, MArch (ARB/RIBA part 2) Architecture with Collaborative Practice Research, which has recently received full accreditation from RIBA and the Architects Registration Board.

The course allows students to spend time out in an architectural practice, gaining real life research and innovation experience. It not only produces graduate architects with a wide range of abilities, but also teaches unique practice-based research and innovation skills not generally offered under the accredited qualification route.

Kaitlin joined us in July and is currently working with some of our senior architects to find a theme to research around collaborative practise.

“Our relationship with Nottinghamshire University is providing not only future employees for Arc Partnership and Nottinghamshire but also a curriculum that is totally aligned to the needs of business which bodes well for the success of all” Dan Maher, MD Arc Partnership

The course is also supported by other high profile architectural practices such as BDP, 3D Reid and WS Atkins.

The skills our trainees bring with them greatly benefit our team and having Kaitlin on board is a fantastic opportunity for Arc to support the architectural and engineering talent of the future through our partnership with the University
