We delivered a 6 week design training programme with Swan Housing Group. We were approached by Swan to provide design training across a number of bespoke topics, from Development Economics to Community Engagement and Commissioning Architects, culminating in a Study Tour of award winning housing developments.
The six training sessions, from beginner to advanced level, provided opportunities for officers to acquire new skills and refresh or develop old ones. Following an introductory workshop in March, participants looked at what is design, why it matters, how we achieve good design and know if we have got it right.
The sessions were well received by the team. “The design training programme provided an enjoyable and informative insight into the topic, and provoked some interesting discussions on how best to achieve design quality though the development process.” Swan Housing Project Officer.
The training was closely related to the recently completed Swan Design Guide to which we contributed.
