Espacios Increíbles is a national, inter-disciplinary competition that combines and celebrates Spanish language learning with aspects of design and technology.
Organised by SCILT, in partnership with the Department of Architecture based at the University of Strathclyde, the competition focuses on building valuable employability skills such as team-working, creativity, organisation, communication, problem-solving and many more. Espacios Increíbles aims to broaden learners' horizons and introduce them to potential career pathways in different fields, and not just the traditional teacher or translator.

Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Espacios Increíbles 2 went ahead during 2020-21. S3 learners from Dunblane High, Holy Cross High, Kinross High and Prestwick Academy earned a well-deserved place at the final, and presented their designs in Spanish to a judging panel for the opportunity to win the ultimate competition prizes on offer. The final took place online on 19 May 2021 and the event concluded with the announcement of the winning school, Holy Cross High School. Congratulations!
This exciting and innovative competition has won much praise and is a great opportunity for your school to take part in something relevant and highly rewarding for your learners.
