RIBA Future Architects LDN / LIV
In the spirit of one of our core guiding principles ‘Knowledge Sharing + Life Long Learning’ which seeks to champion knowledge sharing, mentoring and career-long learning towards continuous improvement, research and development, we are delighted to be an RIBA Future Architects Student Mentoring Practice 2021/22.
Mesha McManaman and Tope Balogun are mentoring students from University of Liverpool and Ravensbourne University respectively. They had introductory sessions with their mentees recently and are both raring to provide support for the next generation. The students will benefit from having an introduction to life in practice and receive one to one support. Mesha and Tope will undoubtedly also find this highly rewarding and beneficial.
Mesha says: “I am very honoured to be a part of the RIBA mentoring programme this year, and very much looking forward to influencing the next generation of architects from our local universities. The Future Architects scheme is a fantastic way to demonstrate the different skillsets required for daily practice life, as well as encouraging and supporting students as they begin to identify their own career goals and direction.”
The practice is also looking forward to developing long term connections with these schools of architecture to help shape and support our profession.
