Build The Way

Build the Way is a 9-month entry-level architecture traineeship providing an alternative and accessible route into a career designing and making buildings, spaces, cities, and communities. The programme provides alternative routes into the industry with the aim of diversifying the profession to ensure cities are designed by those who inhabit them.

The yearly programme provides valuable training for young people alongside paying them the London Living Wage. With no experience-based barriers to application; places are offered to those who can show a passion for design and cities. Trainees are also enrolled at the London School of Architecture’s Extended Programme Qualification (worth up to 28 UCAS points for higher education) which presents the practice of spatial design as a collective endeavour with a focus on context and sustainability.

Build The Way hopes to be a part of the movement and debate around architectural education and training, changing the future landscape.
