Alex Tindall scooped £600 for achieving the highest grade in the country for the qualification at Level 3, while Caroline Sait and Jordan Whittle collected £300 and £100 respectively for their achievements at Levels 2 and 1. All three winners were also treated to an exclusive tour of the Olympic Park.
Alex Tindall who studied at MidKent College, was delighted with his prize. He said: “I’ve always fancied a career in construction, so studying the Diploma in C&BE was a great step towards achieving this goal. I learnt a huge amount over the last two years – not just the theory on different aspects of the industry, but a lot of practical work as well.”
The Rewarding Diplomas Awards were created by the Diploma in C&BE Partnership to demonstrate the qualification’s continued success since its inception in 2008.
Roy Cavanagh MBE, Chair of the Diploma in C&BE Partnership, said: “The Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment is recognised industry-wide as a really valuable qualification and a benchmark of quality for those entering the industry.
“Since its inception in 2008 the Diploma has supplied the industry with thousands of talented new recruits like Alex, Caroline and Jordan who are the future of the construction workforce.
“It’s important therefore to recognise the value of the Diploma, what it means for the industry as well as the outstanding achievement of these students. It’s fantastic to see the continued support from CITB-ConstructionSkills and the CIOB as well as our sponsors today Edexcel and AQA-City & Guilds.”
Ziggy Liaquat, Managing Director of Edexcel said: “It is great to see the hard work these students have put into their Diploma being recognised. They are the future of the construction business and I congratulate them and wish them every success in the future.”
