Free online summer school to develop design, engineering and employability skills

TEDI-London is a new higher education enterprise based at the Printworks in Canada Water – and locals aged 16+ are invited to apply for a part-time three week programme this summer.

TEDI-London’s Thinking Ahead programme is a design competition to develop ideas for a colour and light installation in Canada Water.

Inspired by TEDI-London’s current student-led project to create dementia friendly communities, Thinking Ahead – Light Up! is seeking ideas for a space that attracts people from a range of backgrounds to visit, reflect and relax.

Anyone taking part will be supported to explore topics including user-centred design, sustainability, innovation, and psychology. You could choose to work on this independently or you could form a group with your friends or family.

It will run from 27 July to 14 August and requires just ten hours a week – the hours are flexible and you can tailor them to your needs.

Submissions will be judged by TEDI-London staff and industry partners, and prizes include one-to-one coaching sessions with industry, professional references (for CVs and personal statements) and digital badges.
