York College student receives inaugural CIC YH Award for Collaboration

CIC Yorkshire and Humber regional committee are delighted that York College student Harry Hope became the recipient of the inaugural CIC YH Award for Collaboration.  The Award is given to any student within the Construction department that has demonstrated a commitment to working collaboratively with their fellow students, whether this is within a specific course project or by working on a project across the department. As part of the award, the winner receives mentoring from the member of the CIC Yorkshire and Humber in order to support their future career in the region.

York College nominated Harry for the award as a result of his hard work and effective management of fellow students throughout the ‘Project’ module of his HNC in Construction and the Built Environment.  The college had been particularly impressed by how Harry handled the presentation of the ‘Project’ to an academic panel.  Stefanie Stead, Regional Chair of the Yorkshire & Humber Construction Industry Council sat on this panel, and thought that you handled the difficult and incredibly challenging questions calmly, professionally and with insight. 

Harry will have a series of mentoring sessions arranged for him by the Yorkshire and Humber committee, they decided this would prove more valuable to a young persons career than prizes of money, books or trade equipment.  One of the most important ways to get ahead in any career is to have good mentoring and the committee hope to help guide Harry on his chosen career path.

CIC Yorkshire and Humber Chair Stefanie Stead commented, “We are absolutely thrilled to have given Harry this award.  It has been clear through his attitude and successes that he is deeply committed to working within the industry in a collaboratively and insightful manner.  He has an excellent career ahead of him, and we look forward to seeing Harry progress.  Well done Harry!"
