We’re bringing together industry-leading businesses with local schools and colleges to develop innovative approaches to learning that give young people the best chance of a great career once they leave education. 

We’re delivering programmes such as Design...Engineer…Construct! that address skills gaps in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). We’re promoting exciting and varied careers ranging from building information modelling (BIM) in construction through to the creative, media and digital sectors. By connecting local schools and employers we can help young east Londoners from diverse backgrounds to prepare for the world of work.
We want to reach the next generation of school children and inspire their academic choices and career paths from a much earlier age. We want to work with schools and employers to stretch ambitions and broaden their horizons.

Design...Engineer…Construct!

Developed by Class of Your Own (https://designengineerconstruct.com/), the course is delivered as a GCSE or A-Level in schools across east London. Working directly with companies ranging from Mace, Balfour Beatty, Allies and Morrison and Buro Happold, students learn the skills they will need to become the architects, structural engineers, site engineers, building and land surveyors, project managers, sustainability managers or 3-d designers of tomorrow. 

So, whether you’re a school interested in delivering the curriculum or a young person wanting to develop the right skills, get in touch at: creatingopportunities@londonlegacy.co.uk

 

Case Studies

  • “We work with a collective of different talented organisations such as contractors, architects and project managers to make it really powerful and give students an understanding of the breadth of career paths they can follow.”
    Some of the students on the programme might not end up being engineers – some of them will be architects, but as long as they’re inspired about our industry that’s fine.
