Applications are OPEN for the PLACED Academy 2024-25!

We’re excited to announce applications are OPEN for the PLACED Academy 2023-24 programme! Starting with a 4-day summer school in late July, the programme consists of monthly sessions that are packed full of creative and skills-building workshops. The programme will run from July 2024 until March 2025 and is totally FREE, including travel costs. Apply now!

The PLACED Academy will support youth voice and citizenship, enabling designers and decision-makers to engage with a group of typically underrepresented people. Participants can expect to develop their skills and knowledge of the built environment as they take part in creative design and skills workshops. Participants will also have the chance to be involved in LIVE projects with industry professionals and meet people in the sector. 

Once they graduate, they can join our Alumni network and receive more support with work experience, events, mentoring and opportunities to help them with the next steps of their journey.

“I would recommend the PLACED Academy to anyone who is thinking that they may want a career in the industry. I am confident that it has equipped me with the necessary skills and passion to succeed in the world.”
