Cadventure has announced a collaboration with Class Of Your Own, the UK-based creator and provider of the award-winning ‘Design Engineer Construct!‘ (DEC) Learning Programme for secondary school students.
Cadventure’s role will be to develop and deliver Bentley Systems software skills training to DEC teachers in schools across the UK and internationally.
As a built-environment focussed STEAM curriculum, Design Engineer Construct! inspires children and young people to explore and access career pathways within the AEC industry.
Class Of Your Own delivers relevant and in-demand knowledge and skills to the industry professionals of the future, giving them real-world practical and digital experience and skills.
It gives students a thorough understanding of the modern construction industry with hands-on experience of the latest cutting-edge software for building and infrastructure design.
Students undertaking DEC can also access an entire suite of recognised qualifications, offering a unique stepping-stone for those wishing to access further and higher education – either full-time or part-time via the traditional university route or an apprenticeship scheme.
Elaine Lewis, Cadventure managing director, said: “We are incredibly thrilled to have this opportunity to partner with Class Of Your Own, working with teachers who will fire the imagination of the next generation of AEC industry professionals.
“As accredited Bentley Institute Training Partners, Cadventure is well-placed to develop engaging and inspirational teacher-centred training to support the Design Engineer Construct! Learning Programme.
“We have over 30 years industry experience – collaborating with world-class architects, engineers, and construction specialists – giving us hands-on knowledge and a deep understanding of the industry which we are delighted to share.”
Class Of Your Own chief executive Alison Watson MBE (pictured) said: “Our partnership with Bentley Systems enables us to open up the world of infrastructure and access major projects all around the world.
“We are therefore very pleased to be working with the professional team at Cadventure, who have a first-class reputation in developing and delivering hands-on Bentley software skills training, infused with their knowledge of how these solutions are used in practice.
“By empowering our teachers, we are giving DEC students the tools they need to access some great career opportunities and reach their full potential.”
