New scholarship available for construction students
Monday, 21 March, 2016

The Building Birmingham Scholarship (BBS) provides access to a wide range of education, employment and training opportunities for talented young people aged between 16 and 24 years of age wishing to pursue a career in the construction and built environment sectors; as well as financial support for those aspiring to continue studies at higher education level at institutions such as Solihull College & University Centre.

There is up to £500 worth of funding available for purchasing travel passes, books, essential materials and equipment, computers, or help towards childcare costs. There is also up to £3,000 worth of additional funding available to help students, this can either be via a bursary fund to help students with day-to-day costs or through a scholarship fund to contribute towards tuition fees.

In order to qualify for funding from the BBS programme students must be progressing to study a relevant (construction related) higher educational course such as a Construction and Built Environment Higher National Certificate (HNC) Diploma at Solihull College & University Centre. Students must also be a Birmingham resident for three years or more; be aged 25 or under at the start of their course; be a UK citizen or have indefinite leave to remain in the UK; have an annual family household income of no more than £35,000; and not already have a degree.

There is a considerable growth in the construction industry currently with a variety of roles becoming available and in order to fill the skills gap for such positions, programmes such as this are a great way to get students learning and on the path to the career which they aspire to. Courses such as the HNCs at Solihull College & University Centre can be part of a student’s journey to being the future workforce within the Birmingham region as the redevelopment of the city continues.
