College of West Anglia construction student wins regional award
College of West Anglia construction student, Anthony Richardson, has won a regional award for outstanding achievement.
Mature student, Anthony (33) has been awarded the Chartered Association of Building Engineers Award.
Anthony, who is studying construction within the built environment, was nominated for the annual award by his tutors at CWA.
A panel consisting of the CABE eastern regional committee, headed by chairman David Taylor, and supported by John Barfoot, learning academic and education director chose Anthony from a number of excellent nominations.
Anthony is currently studying for a Higher National Certificate. The two-year long industry-recognised qualification will allow him to pursue his aspiration of becoming a graduate architectural technologist.
Anthony said:“I am very grateful for the award and the recognition of my efforts for the first year of my HNC. As a result of my first-year results, I have been able to secure an unconditional offer at Coventry University on to the top-up degree in architectural technology. I will be continuing my studies entering into the third year out of five, on the part-time Bachelor of Science programme.”
John Barfoot commented: “It’s great to see mature students being recognised for dedication and achievement during their studies whilst juggling the additional challenges of work and family. We wish him success in his future career and look forward to seeing him become a chartered member of our Association”.
Anthony’s lecturer, Jane Burton, said: “Anthony is a student who is outstandingly committed to his studies. He has good time management skills and copes with work at a higher level extremely well. As a result, he attains excellent grades which is why he was nominated for this award.”
Anthony will receive a certificate, help with his career development and membership support from the CABE HQ and Eastern Regional team to become a Chartered Member of the Association.
