Strategic/ Creative direction
At Makerversity we have a commitment to creating learning and employability opportunities for young people, as well as offering educational experiences to the wider general public.
As part of this work we have worked with a range of partners to create a suite of education products from singular classes, longer term projects and programs, internship and apprentice opportunities and online learning.
This curriculum is delivered at our facilities in London and Amsterdam, as well as taken into schools and communities.
We aim to inspire the next generation of creative and practical minds through work placements, events and our education program Makerversity DIY.
The aim of the programs combine practical hands on learning, critical thinking and exposing the participants to a range of empowering processes and methods.
As well as this the program is designed to introduce participants to a range of professionals who are working in jobs that previously would have been unfamiliar or may have been seen as out of reach.
We have worked with a variety of partners to develop the content and work with the young people including Autodesk, The Princes Trust, Pearson and The I Am Angel foundation.
Makerversity DIY is a pioneering curriculum of hands-on lessons for teachers and students everywhere. Our simple and exciting lesson plans enable educators to incorporate making and hands-on activities into core curriculum subjects.
Lessons are designed to bring making and teamwork into the classroom simply and affordably. Whether you’re looking for new and engaging ways to teach Maths, Physics, IT or creative subjects, there’s a Makerversity DIY lesson that can help. Oh and best of all, we simply ask you to ‘Pay What You Can’ for each lesson.
In addition to formal learning experiences, we also use our platform to create valuable educational experiences for our membership.
This has included projects and programs focused around incubating new ideas, providing direct access to the public and investing directly in early stage individuals and businesses.
We have worked with partners including Innovate UK, The Design Council and Selfridges to design programs that support emerging makers with financial, business and strategic support.
Every three months we offer free membership to makers under 25 years old (or there about's), providing the tools and space to develop a business idea.
Membership includes desk space, access to all workshops, fabrication facilities and events as well as joining a growing international community of over 300 makers and 100 businesses.
We know that when you’re starting out changing the game is hard when rent is building up. So in our facilities, together with our members we will support and celebrate your amazing ideas and hard work.You might never have been to school or university. You might be a freelancer or have your own start-up. Maybe you’ve never had a job or maybe you’re already a director of your own company.
