Arup Community Engagement

Partner overview

Class of Your Own is a social business with the vision of inspiring young people to reach their full potential through world class education and opportunity. Their mission is to develop innovative, contextualised approaches to teaching and learning, enable young people from all backgrounds to explore aspirational career pathways, and establish sustainable relationships between education and industry.

Class of Your Own has been delivering one day workshops and other built environment student engagement programmes to schools/colleges since 2009 and, from September 2012, the full and accredited Design…Engineer…Construct! (DEC) curriculum. Through a project-based approach, DEC! applies pure academic subjects to the latest construction industry practices. The result is young people with real-world practical experience and employability skills.

There is little understanding of Built Environment professions and few young people aspire to a career in this important sector of the British and global economy. By getting involved with DEC! schools and industry can educate the future of construction and change the lives of young people.

Arup UKMEA region formed a three year strategic partnership with Class of Your Own in April 2016.
