Samuel has studied hard and improved his knowledge and confidence significantly this year while undertaking his Level 3 Construction and The Built Environment Course.
On accepting his award Samuel said "Havering College has a lot of opportunities for students and never lets your hard work go unnoticed. Me, I was nominated for my dedication and effort, so if you think your hard work is going unnoticed it is not!!"
During his visit, John happily answered questions from Career College learners regarding Barking Riverside and opportunities to work with L&Q in the future.
Paul Mason-Hughes, Career Colleges Lead at Havering College, thanked John for L&Q’s continued support and commitment to the Career Colleges Trust values of encouraging local young people to gain technical skills while being supported by employers – developing the construction workforce of the future.
