Client: Leeds Beckett University
Contract: Bespoke - Turnkey Build, Hire & Maintenance
Work is now complete on the development of a new temporary home for the Carnegie School of Education at our Headingley Campus. The new Carnegie Teacher Education Building will replace and rationalise the teaching space which was lost as a result of the demolition of the Design Technology block in July 2018.
The new two storey teaching facility will be used solely by our teacher training courses and comprises a number of spaces which mimic real-life nursery and primary school settings, including: a computer and maths classroom; an art and design workshop; a primary education science laboratory; a model early years classroom and a secure external play area.
All the classrooms have been designed to model both primary and early-years learning environments, which will allow our teaching students to investigate the impact of the environment on learning, teaching and assessment. It will also enable the students to work with children from local schools who will be able to visit for Carnegie School of Education aspiration and project days in a cutting edge, bespoke environment.
