We are excited to announce an expansion to our Brief Cases scheme, the 'Stephen George + You' programme.

In a partnership between The Heaven Company and Stephen George + Partners LLP, we are piloting our new Architecture and Sustainability course, embarking on what could be a revolutionary ten week education-programme.

Involving groups of Key Stage 3 & 4 (Year 7 to 10) students at three forward-thinking secondary schools in the South, Midlands and North of England, the students will be enhancing their understanding of the built environment today, what it means to them and what the future holds.

Moreover – and this is the really important part – what they think they can do to influence change for the better.

Judges: The business-education partnerships scheme Brief Cases continues to accumulate an impressive array of prestigious judges from industry and has included Dr Andy Wood, CEO at Adnams, Staffan Sjöberg, PR Manager at Iggesund Holmen Group, Brian Webb, managing director of design consultancy Webb and Webb, Susan Wright Editorial Director of Earth Island Publishing, Thom Stebbings, Consumer Insight Manager at Virgin Enterprises and Iain Ferguson from The Co-operative Group to name just a few.

Commenting, Veronica Heaven, founder of Brief Cases said: “It really is a fantastic to see how the scheme is growing and we must pay tribute to the hard work of the students, their lecturers and the participating universities for having the vision to get on board with Brief Cases. Of course, this would not be possible without the incredible support of our main sponsors and partners as well as our wonderful judges to whom we are extremely grateful.”

The team is getting increasingly excited as we put the final pieces of information together for the Brief Cases judging session. Our industry based judging panel will review all the great work submitted as part of this year’s national competition.

And a reminder (or perhaps it’s a plea) to all those who completed Brief Cases and attended the final client meeting to present the project outcomes, please make sure that your final work is submitted to lecturers and course leaders by the deadline given. This is to ensure that your work is included for review at the industry panel. We don’t want you to miss out!

Looking forward to a great day and sharing the outcomes soon.
