Abstract / Description

Following the successful completion of my application to become a SFHEA (Senior Fellowship), the following article was based on its researched findings.and published with the investigations. The paper discusses the importance of work placement, and how the students positively respond to its challenges, excited about their career opportunities ahead.However when the students return from placement they quickly revert to old ways of working and engaging with with projects, in short our present classroom environment lowers their expectations of pace and professional working patterns.is there a way to encourage the students to work consistently throughout their designated time within the studios. the paper proposes a series of time related workshops that identify as a defined and prescriptive task that will work towards the larger body of the project. Plus all modules were realigned to build a comprehensive series of learning that fed into and out off each module to show the relevance of differing briefs, methods of working and therefore demonstrating that all aspects were in line with a professional approach and understanding of both the syllabus and the professional aspects required by the Interiors Design Industry.
