Learning Workshop

Call for Architects!


The IAF is delighted to announce the 2016-17 term of the National Architects in Schools Initiative. Devised and delivered by the Irish Architecture Foundation, this engaging initiative will provide students with first-hand experience of the design process under the guidance of design professionals.

The National Architects in Schools Initiative is co-funded by the Arts Council, Department of Education and Skills and the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs under the Government Policy on Architecture implementation programme 2013.

Applications are welcomed from architects and architecture graduates interested in education and public outreach. Participants will qualify for CPD points and will receive a facilitation fee for delivering the design workshops. We are currently seeking architects/graduates in the following areas:

North Donegal (within travel distance of Milford)
Cork (within travel distance of Kinsale)
Dublin (within travel distance of Dublin West + city centre)
Tipperary (within travel distance of Carrick on Suir)

The initiative currently operates in secondary schools across Donegal, Mayo, Galway, Leitrim, Longford, Kerry, Cork, Tipperary, Waterford, Kilkenny and Dublin. The IAF also partners with National Education Centres and third level architecture and design schools including DIT, WIT and GMIT throughout the year in delivering training sessions and end of year exhibitions.

Information about financial reimbursement and application forms are available from the IAF’s Education Curator. Expressions of interest should be made by Friday 23 September.

Applicants are encouraged to participate in our National Training Day on Saturday 24 September.
