The success came soon after Leeds College of Building student Rebekah Woodend was pronounced BTEC Construction Learner of the Year in Pearson's 2022 BTEC awards. Rebekah is studying a BTEC Higher National Diploma (HND) in Construction & the Built Environment (Surveying). She is a mother of two young children, in full-time employment, and a carer for her partner.

The week prior, Leeds College of Building Level 6 Civil Engineering Site Management Degree Apprentice Alisa Ahmad (employed at BAM Nuttall Ltd) was named the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) Apprentice of the Year.

Finally, Leeds College of Building apprentice Leora Wilson reached the finals of the National Apprenticeship Awards 2022 which took place at a special ceremony in London (30 November).

Nikki Davis, the first female Principal & CEO of Leeds College of Building, said:

"We are immensely proud of all our students and apprentices who have achieved recognition at so many prestigious national awards. These competitions are often the pinnacle of construction specialisms and only recognise the very best young talent in the industry. Having so many female students and future role models making such an impression on the construction sector is phenomenal too.

"Congratulations also goes to our dedicated staff working tirelessly to unlock the capabilities of our students. They offer endless encouragement across diverse subjects from civil engineering and transport planning to trade crafts and surveying. The skills that students gain from college and hands-on work experience with our exceptional employer partners is truly transforming lives, and helping to boost the skills needed for a robust regional and national economy."
