As the UrbanPlanUK Autumn 16 tour draws to a close, we are delighted to report that we have visited another 15 schools and reached another 450 pupils from Scotland, to Liverpool, via Sheffield and Birmingham and then London! Feedback again has been outstanding the below is from one London teacher:
”From a teaching and careers perspective, it was brilliant to see, even in such a short period of time, the impact UrbanPlan has made on students’ aspirations- many of them now want to consider career routes into property! In addition to the insight into the property industry the session cleverly developed their interpersonal, communication and team working skills.Students were incredibly positive about the day and it was a pleasure to be involved. Thanks to your exceptional volunteers and facilitators. They were incredibly patient, informative and engaging and these events make such a difference to the students we work with.”
We would like to reiterate our thanks to our group of fantastic sponsors that make the delivery of this programme possible.
British Land, Hammerson, Land Securities, Grosvenor, Strutt & Parker, CapCo, Native Land, Malcolm Hollis, Changing the Face of Property, Tristan Foundation, BlackHeart Foundation and the IPF Educational Trust.
The tour coincided with another award for the programme too: UrbanPlan UK won the GOLD EVCOM 2016 Live Award for Education & Training.
