“Today’s youth, (and tomorrows leaders), need to be more resilient than any generation before them. They’ll need to be able to make decisions based on something more than a gut feeling.

Attending Placed Academy means they can base their future career decisions on experience, evidence and enter a profession with a very clear understanding on what they are about to embark on.

Working with one of my clients, RIBA, has given me a deeper understanding of the built environment, and why place shaping and place making is so important. I choose to support Placed Academy because I wanted to invest in the future of our young people and in the city region.”
