At Pride Road, we pride ourselves on giving back to the cities where we live and work wherever we can! After our recent talk at Liverpool John Moores University we’ve taken on a volunteering project for the RIBA student mentoring scheme this year.
Pride Road Liverpool South is working with the RIBA to help mentor architecture students at the University of Liverpool. Participating Schools of Architecture offer the scheme to undergraduate RIBA student members during the autumn and spring each of academic year.
The mentoring scheme is intended to give students an insight into practice and to enhance their learning experience. This academic year, around 900 students and 450 mentors are taking part in the RIBA scheme.
The scheme works with RIBA student members taking part in the scheme who are matched with mentors. Working with the students, the Pride Road mentoring will cover an introduction to working life at Pride Road, a successful project and a follow-through of a current live project
As a RIBA student monitor, Pride Road are proud to demonstrate design in practice, offer an insight into the business of architecture and experience of practice and to provide support on professionally-related matters professionalism. We even get to talk about our work on BBC Merseyside!
This year, Catherine Traynor is mentoring two students and will show them some of the successful projects undertaken by Pride Road in the domestic residential sector such as this great house extension project in Hale, Liverpool.
