BFE Learner lines up for more Success

Recent Prince’s Trust course participant Christopher Laws has a great deal to be proud about.  After completing his studies with Building Futures East in March, Chris secured employment through Balfour Beatty and one of their sub contractors.  The first of its kind in the region, this Prince’s Trust ‘Get into Construction’ programme included 2 weeks of work placement at the Haymarket Newcastle University construction site made possible thanks to Balfour Beatty.  After proving himself during his time onsite, Chris was offered a contract.

In recognition of his hard work and achievement, Chris has now also been nominated for a Newcastle City Council award, as they provided the funding to make this course possible.

The awards ceremony takes place at Newcastle Civic Centre on 15th May; a big ‘Good Luck’ from everyone at BFE, Balfour Beatty and the Prince’s Trust!
