An innovative architecture project at HMYOI Wetherby is changing the mind-set of a group of young learners and giving them the skills they need for a successful rehabilitation.
The project is led by architect Karl Lenton, a member of the SEED Network, which promotes the idea that design matters and can be used to support communities to better themselves. Karl worked with the Novus education department at HMYOI Wetherby to give the young people a grounding in some of the basic skills of architecture.
The project has been embedded into the education provision delivered by Novus within the establishment. Construction Curriculum Leader, Andy Dye has overseen the course and the development of the boys.
He said: “We have seen how much they have taken on-board and they now know where an education can take them and what they can get from it. They have only being doing this a short period of time and it’s already clear what a difference it can make.”
