Workshops held for students at Accrington and Rossendale College
Recently, Liberata Architects held two workshops for the industrial placement students at Accrington & Rossendale College. The students who are currently gaining experience at Spacious Place Construct in Burnley, were given some great insight into the role of the architect in the industry and construction processes.
The aim of the workshops was to arm students with the skills they need for the working world. Part of the workshop involved tasking the students with putting ideas forward for the refurbishment of the former Waterloo Public House on Trafalgar Street in Burnley – this initiative will be the first project the students will work on during their placement.
In addition, the placement students will be applying the skills they learned to help build of new houses and apartments in Burnley.
Natalie Sarabia-Johnstone, Head of Architecture at Liberata Architects, said: “It is important that we invest in the skills of the future. The two workshops provided us with an opportunity to prepare the young workforce with the kind of experience they will need to succeed in their future careers. We look forward to working with Spacious Place and Accrington & Rossendale College in the future, to provide further training and development opportunities.”
