Celebrating construction’s Young Achievers

Charity Construction Youth Trust has launched its 5th annual awards scheme The Duke of Gloucester’s Young Achievers Scheme 2016.

The Duke of Gloucester’s Young Achievers scheme is a great opportunity for exceptional young professionals under 30 working in construction and the built environment to be commended and celebrated for their achievements.

There are five categories to enter:

  • Construction Delivery
  • Design, Planning and Architecture
  • Engineering
  • Project Management
  • Surveying.

One of the category winners is chosen as Overall Winner of the awards scheme. Finalists are judged by a panel of industry experts through a process of presentations and interviews.

They will be looking for young people who have not only achieved excellence in their careers so far, but who have had to overcome barriers and challenges or social disadvantage to get to where they are. They also look for those who go the extra mile by being involved with activities or initiatives that benefit the community or the construction industry.

Each winner will receive a cash prize and a unique development opportunity through the Trust with a one year mentoring programme to enable them to make an even greater impact in the years to come. To enter, applicants must be under the age of 30 on 30th January 2016.

Those interested in applying for The Duke of Gloucester’s Young Achievers Scheme have until the 6th November 2015 to apply for these prestigious awards.

The winners will be presented at an awards dinner in Spring 2016.
