    During 2002-2004, The UK Design Council initiative Designers into Schools, placed professional designers in secondary school Design & Technology classes across the UK. The initiative successfully matched 327 designers from across the range of creative disciplines with English secondary schools.

    Although, the Design Council has now suspended the administration of the initiative, (having fulfilled its initial brief to run for three successive years), the DiSW website and information is certainly inspiring.

    Linking the creative industry with education should, in my opinion, practice more initiatives like this. Nevertheless, this is yet another inspiring project from the UK Design Council!
