Timber TED 2 now open for applications

TRA members are invited to apply for places on the Timber Technology Engineering Design 2 (Timber TED 2) course at the New Model Institute for Technology and Engineering (NMITE). The 12-week-long course starts in May 2024, and early applications are encouraged.

Timber TED has been running since 2022, and by the end of this year, 35 participants will have taken part. Each cohort is carefully limited to ensure that each participant benefits from one-to-one learning and group learning.

Timber TED 2 is backed by Edinburgh Napier University and Timber Development UK and is designed in response to the need to upskill and reskill the built environment professionals of the future, to address the climate emergency.

The course is being delivered with a blended approach (ie. online and in person), with three short (three-day) residential weeks at Hereford. The course is split into three modules, with design being the overarching theme throughout the 12 weeks covering timber construction, technology and manufacturing.

This course is for those already within the industry, or for those who have already completed the NMITE Timber TED 1 course and would like to extend their knowledge even further.

Tabitha Binding, CATT Lead for External Engagements and Partnerships, NMITE says the course is ideal for TRA members who wish to upskill their staff.

“The Timber TED courses provide a structured route for career development in a great learning environment with access to the latest design and manufacturing technology. We encourage all members to consider enrolling appropriate staff for these courses to ensure they are prepared for the future demands of our industry.”

To apply for a place, visit NMITE’s website.

There are a few places left on the Timber TED1 course starting on 18 September; apply now to secure a place.
