 Wakefield College celebrated the achievements of their Level 3 Construction students today when Kat Seymour, North Regional Manager at CIOB (The Chartered Institute of Building) and Sam Dibaj, Chair of the CIOB Leeds Hub, paid a visit to present them with their awards.

Dominic Collomosse, Callum Watson and Joel Crossley, all Level 3 Construction and the Built Environment students, were recognised for their efforts and successes and presented with a CIOB Student Award 2021 by Sam. Jacey Boyle, a Level 3 Electrical Installation student was also awarded the CIOB Student Award 2021. Last year, the awards were presented on students’ doorsteps, this year however the CIOB were able to attend socially distanced to present the awards to the students in person with their certificate and goody bags.

Sam, alongside tutors David Balme and Tim Baldock and Executive Director of Student Experience and Support, Clare Allcock, also presented students with the awards for this year’s CIOB Leeds Hub Student Challenge.
