Cadventure will develop Bentley Systems software skills training to DEC teachers in schools across the UK and internationally.

Cadventure has teamed up with Class Of Your Own, the UK-based creator and provider of the “Design Engineer Construct!” (DEC) Learning Programme for secondary school students.

Through the collaboration, Cadventure, an accredited Bentley Institute Training Partner, will develop and deliver Bentley Systems software skills training to DEC teachers in schools across the UK and internationally.

As a Built Environment focused STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) curriculum, Design Engineer Construct! aims to inspire children and young people to explore and access career pathways within the AEC industry.

“Our partnership with Bentley Systems enables us to open up the world of infrastructure and access major projects all around the world, said Alison Watson, MBE and Class Of Your Own chief executive (pictured above speaking at Bentley Systems YII 2019). “We are therefore very pleased to be working with the professional team at Cadventure who have a first-class reputation in developing and delivering hands-on Bentley software skills training, infused with their knowledge of how these solutions are used in practice.

“By empowering our teachers, we are giving DEC students the tools they need to access some great career opportunities and reach their full potential. We want to open up horizons and deliver on their aspirations. This exciting partnership massively supports our aim to educate the Future of Construction.”

Class Of Your Own aims to deliver relevant and in-demand knowledge and skills to the industry professionals of the future, giving them real-world practical and digital experience. It gives students an understanding of the modern construction industry with hands-on experience of the latest cutting-edge software for building and infrastructure design.

Students undertaking DEC can also access an entire suite of recognised qualifications, offering a stepping-stone for those wishing to access further and higher education, either full-time or part-time via the traditional university route or an apprenticeship scheme.
