AEW Architects are very proud to be taking part in the RIBA Student Mentoring programme. The scheme was founded in Manchester in 2015 and aims to enhance the students’ academic education by demonstrating design in practice and offering an insight and experience of the business of architecture.
Associates at AEW, Alex Southall and Ross Huntingdon are mentoring Ceri Baxter and Jumana Taraz , who are second year students from Manchester School of Architecture. They will attend regular visits to AEW to gain an understanding of how a professional practice operates. The students will attend a series of site visits, project meetings and design reviews as well as receiving support on professionally related matters including CV writing, interview techniques, portfolio presentation and presentation techniques.
Andy Rainford, Director at AEW Architects commented, ‘as a Chartered Practice we are delighted to be able work with the RIBA and Manchester School of Architecture, to enhance and safeguard the future of our profession by inspiring, motivating and mentoring the next generation, which is one of our core values as a sustainable business’
