Baveystock visits Leeds College of Building

ICE director general Nick Baveystock recently visited Leeds College of Building’s new £17M education and training campus during a visit to the Yorkshire & Humber region.

The new all-purpose building in Leeds City Centre is intended to provide an inspiring atmosphere for students of the college, with more than half of the space dedicated to specialist workshops.

Leeds College of Building has strong links with the Institution, following the development of 22 advanced apprenticeship and technical routes including civil engineering - together with two higher level apprenticeships in construction and built environment and facilities management. These offer an alternative to university and a path to achieving the recognised EngTech status.
Baveystock met with college managers and students and said the new facility was extremely important in “galvanising the enthusiasm of those young people who will go on to form part of the civil engineering workforce of the future”.

He added that it was “heartening to see such a strong emphasis on the practical, alongside the intellectual and theoretical elements of studies”.

The building is due for completion in the coming weeks.
