What we do

Class of Your Own Limited has been delivering one day workshops and other built environment student engagement programmes to schools/colleges since 2009 and, from September 2012, the full and accredited DEC curriculum and learning programme. We are a Social Business, with social purpose objects and restriction on distribution of profits being entrenched in our governing documents.

Our aim is the achievement of our vision and mission through the delivery of the DEC curriculum, with corresponding increased positive social outcomes. We work in partnership and collaboration with schools, government and industry organisations to this effect.

Our Vision

Inspiring all young people to reach their full potential through world class education and opportunity.

Our Mission

To develop innovative, contextualised approaches to teaching and learning, enable young people from all backgrounds to explore aspirational career pathways, and establish sustainable relationships between education and industry to provide a world of opportunity for young people.

Where it began

Land Surveyor Alison Watson and Architect Dan Gibson set up Class Of Your Own Limited in May 2009 to provide hands on workshops and a dedicated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) focussed creative curriculum. Our aim was to encourage students, teachers and parents to recognise careers in Architecture, Engineering and Construction as highly skilled opportunities, and wholly relevant to future employment prospects. After an inspiring workshop with a group of absolutely brilliant secondary school students, we had a rather life changing “what if?” moment, the catalyst for Design Engineer Construct!® the most innovative, challenging and relevant secondary school curriculum development in recent years.
