Construction Services Apprentice of the Year

A London South Bank University (LSBU) student won a prestigious Construction Services Apprentice of the Year award at the BAME Apprenticeships Awards 2020, while a second, female engineering LSBU apprentice was highly commended.

Romario Cazaubon, who is currently enrolled on a five-year quantity surveying degree apprenticeship with Mace Group, took the top prize for construction services apprentice. Dionne Alder, who is enrolled on a civil engineering apprenticeship with Southwark Council as her employer, received a highly commended from the judges. Both students are studying part-time on their respective degree courses at LSBU’s School of Architecture and the Built Environment (BEA), while completing their apprenticeships.

Since apprenticeship schemes were first introduced at LSBU four years ago, the university has enrolled over half (51%) of all apprentices from a BAME/multi-ethnic background: 16% black, 27% Asian, and 8% mixed race.

Of these applicants, 43% are female, working in typically male-dominated professions, such as building services and engineering, as well as typically female-dominated professions such as healthcare (55%).

In 2019-2020, out of a total of 1,600 LSBU apprentices, 38% degree/higher apprentices were women, with 28% studying for careers in architecture, building services and planning (17% in quantity surveying, 9% in engineering, 6% in architecture and 6% in chartered planning) with 7% in business management.
