Student mentoring at Gort Scott with RIBA Future Architects

Gort Scott were excited to host a new cohort of students from Kingston University, London as part of RIBA Future Architects student mentoring scheme. The first of three sessions gave students an introduction to our refurbished studio in Bermondsey, an insight into our lives in practice and a presentation on the projects we work on.

For the last five years Gort Scott have helped the next generation of undergraduate students to gain a unique insight into the profession, helping them to prepare for a future career in architecture. The next session will see the mentees visit a range of completed, and in progress, projects across Walthamstow, including our two adaptive re-use schemes along Hoe Street, our recently completed homes for Pocket Living and our ongoing work within the Fellowship Square regeneration strategy.

In 2022/23, 1200 students across 37 RIBA validated Schools of Architecture took part in the scheme, in collaboration with 314 chartered practices. Gort Scott are proud to be able to support architects at all stages of their career and help to bridge the gap between education and practice.

Thank you to the Gort Scott team: Paul Wild and Ben Carter for planning and delivering the sessions.
