Training & Mentoring

In 2021 the ECE team spent over 1,480 hours in CPD’s, knowledge workshops, software training and site visits. The majority of our seminars are RIBA accredited, covering all aspects of technical design, statutory regulation changes, practice management and sustainability.

ECE is also part of the RIBA mentoring scheme, giving students from Brighton and Portsmouth Universities our advice and support through their undergraduate degree.

We offer up to 5 one year placements every year for postgraduate Architectural Assistants before they start their Masters.

Staff meeting and field visit

“Working at ECE has been a massive learning curve; I have been able to get involved in a number of projects since I’ve been here and have learnt a lot through immersing myself in live projects in the office environment. ECE not only offers an opportunity to grow your knowledge but to engage in the social aspect of work with a number of social events and study trips. I now feel more prepared to continue my profession in architecture.”Laura Penrose, Part 1 Architectural Assistant
