RICS sponsors new educational scheme to encourage young talent into a career in design, engineering and construction.
Students from schools in London and the South East were invited to RICS’ HQ on Parliament Square to celebrate the launch of one of the most innovative secondary education programmes in recent years.
The groundbreaking Design Engineer Construct!® Curriculum developed by Class of Your Own (COYO) brings together industry and education to inspire and encourage future built environment professionals. The curriculum is aimed at a generation of tech savvy young learners who need support to grasp the application of pure subjects and how they relate to solving some of the world’s greatest challenges in sustainable living.
In order to encourage industry involvement, COYO has developed the ‘Adopt A School’ scheme with RICS being one of its earliest adopters. RICS is sponsoring students from Clacton Coastal Academy and encouraging others in the industry to do the same.
