Congratulations to our Higher National Diploma (HND) Class of 2019 who all graduated last week in the beautiful Lincoln Cathedral.

Joe Wild, George Kyme, David Scrafton, Sophie Harwood, Kyle Moss and Tom Peden (left to right) completed their HND in Construction and the Built Environment (Civil Engineering) through Lincoln College after joining Waldeck via various routes.

Becky Hicks, Talent Acquisition Partner at Waldeck shares:

“The cohort have been the model for continuous professional development within the company, demonstrating that with a lot of hard work it is possible to continue your education whilst working full time.

“We’re proud to say that our students made up over 50% of the HND class, all achieving a Merit or a Distinction grade, for which we are very proud of them. The course has been funded and supported by Waldeck as part of our commitment to the learning and development of our employees. ’

Sophie, Kyle, George and Tom joined the business straight from school into Waldeck’s in-house BIM Academy over five years ago. The scheme encompassed a unique programme with a combination of tailored classroom training and live project work, ensuring the group received the right balance of academic knowledge and real-life experience in order to be successful in both their college work and careers. Joe and David joined the business slightly later into their careers.

What’s next?

We are pleased to share that Joe, Tom and David are now furthering their academic development having recently enrolled on a BSc in Civil Engineering at Nottingham Trent University. Sophie, George and Kyle continue to follow their chosen career paths, fully immersed in a range of exciting projects within the business.
