Congratulations to Croydon College student Rebecca Russell who was commended at the Youthbuild UK (YBUK) Young Builder of the Year Awards at the House of Commons, Wednesday 16 October 2019!

Youthbuild UK works with a variety of organisations from the public, private and third sectors to provide training, qualifications and employment to disadvantaged young people in the construction industry.

Over the last 20 years, Youthbuild UK has been involved in over 150 projects ranging from self-build housing schemes, to refurbishments and ongoing maintenance. Many of the 5000 plus young people involved have gained a range of industry recognised qualifications, as well as practical experience and generic job skills.

The awards celebrate the achievements of these young people who have overcome a wide range of challenges in order to receive training and gain a qualification, to then find employment in the construction industry.

Peter Lang, Head of Technical, Engineering and Building Professions at Croydon College, attended the awards in support of Rebecca and said, ‘This was a great experience for Rebecca. I’m extremely proud of her achievements!’
