As designers, we deal with conflict by collaborating to create a better world for everyone. We reject war as a means to resolve conflicts – design culture is non-violent. We stand with the students, educators, researchers, scholars, and anyone who battle for equity, justice and peace for everyone.
Applications are now open for the 2022 United In Design / IE Apprenticeship programme.
This competition is open to all members of the Interior Educators national subject association and is for final year graduates of all undergraduate interiors and spatial programmes.
The 2022 apprenticeship will comprise a one year paid opportunity, working in four London - based practices over the calendar year. In order to achieve our charitable aims and to address a lack of diversity within the Interior Design industry, we welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic students.
Interior Educators (IE) is the organisation established by academics representing well-established Interior programmes from across the UK. Founded by Graeme Brooker at Manchester School of Art in 2006, IE now represents more than 50 Higher Education institutions, teaching almost 3,000 students.
It is a unique group in that it provides a forum for debate and the exchange of ideas and practice affecting the education of designers of interior space, at both undergraduate and masters level. It is the only relevant and influential forum for interiors education and educators in the UK. It meets formally twice each year, has an annual exhibition, conference and a new publication IE:Studio originated by members David Littlefield and Shelley McNulty. In order to reflect its not for profit status, and to assist it in its aims to benefit all forms of interior education and educators, it became a charity in 2012.
