The Northern Architecture Graduate Retention and Development (G.R.A.D.) Programme is a collaboration between built environment graduates seeking relevant experience and employment, community based organisations, architectural practices and schools of architecture in the North East of England. It commenced in January 2010 in response to the economic situation affecting employment opportunities for graduates of architecture and other built environment disciplines in the North East of England. Its participants (known as GRADs) identify problems with design based solutions and how those projects may lead to funded work – either for the graduates or for local practices.
