Exciting Opportunities from Architecture+Design Scotland

Upcoming opportunities that we are taking bookings for now:

Portfolio Building Course

An intensive four day course on every Saturday in November for students thinking of applying to study architecture at university. Students will gain insight into what universities look for in their applicants and receive help with putting together a quality portfolio. A popular course which fills up fast! Further details available here.

Architecture Academy

A 3-day taster course in the October holiday for those considering going on to study architecture. Students will gain an insight into architectural study and complete a portfolio ready mini project. Another popular course which fills up fast! Further details are available here.

Please note participation in the above courses does not guarantee entry onto any university course.

Free teacher CPD

‘High Street Stories’ is an exciting, interdisciplinary project for upper primary/lower secondary students in the same vein as our very successful ‘Model School’ project. The training workshops provide the resources, understanding and confidence needed for teachers to bring the project to life and teach children how places shape lives. More information is available here.

Teacher Focus Group Opportunity

We are looking for interested teachers to take part in our focus group to help deliver high quality education resources on the built environment, architecture and place-making. More information is available here.

Bespoke workshops for schools

Architecture + Design Scotland can design workshops to your requirements. Just tell us your ideas and we can design something to suit you and your students. More information is available here.

Reminder: Maggie’s Competition

Two weeks to go until the deadline for the Maggie’s Architectural competition related to their exhibition at The Lighthouse. A great project for a standard grade or higher art class and a great prize for someone interested in architecture. More information is available here.

Maggie’s Architectural Competition

Maggie’s Cancer Care Centres are running an exciting competition for secondary students interested in architecture.

Coinciding with their new exhibition at The Lighthouse, Maggie’s would like to invite students to submit their own design for a cancer caring centre to be displayed in The Lighthouse in October 2011.

Winners will be invited to the opening of the new Maggie’s at Gartnavel
Hospital, designed by world renowned architect Rem Koolhaas, and will win a work experience placement with Reiach & Hall Architects in Edinburgh.
