South East Coastal Communities Summer Interns Programme 2010

Project Details


Following on from the success of the first SECC Summer Interns Programme run during the summer vacation 2009, this year the students worked with 3 local community clients:

- St Faith’s Church, Havant;
- St Columba Church, Fareham;
- The Roberts Centre, Portsmouth.

From the first week of the 2010 Interns Programme the students were asked to work closely with Real clients on Live projects in a studio based environment. They were only guided and advised by staff from the Project Office, they were neither led nor spoon fed. The Interns were provided with a timetable of events and were told that they must present their initial research and finished design work on set days in front of their clients. The Interns were provided with a fixed budget and asked to produce postcards, banners, books, models, posters, websites and drawings for each of their three clients.

All 8 of the Interns involved with this intensive project developed their business, design, presentation and leadership skills while at the same time learning how to work as a team under pressure. In this way, the Interns Programme provided the students with a vehicle to undertake paid architectural consultancy work in an academic and practice-based environment.
