Skills & Training
The Built Environment Specialist Trainer (BEST) Programme was written by the internationally recognised Class of Your Own to teach CoYO supporters how to be a Design, Engineer, Construct! teacher, giving them a fully accredited Level 4 teacher qualification for the purpose of aiding the struggling education system in teaching technical subjects, to forge stronger links between education and the workplace and to improve the offering of DEC! to reach even more students, giving them in many cases a lifeline into an industry that is creative, challenging and rewarding. This co-hosted case study features two secondary school teachers and one BIM Consultant who will look at the vision behind the BEST Programme, the benefit to the training school, the challenges faced by the first ever CoYO BEST and why you should seriously consider a part-time career in teaching the upcoming generation about an incredibly diverse industry that will struggle to survive without them.
