As well as managing apprenticeships and being the standard-setting body for construction-related qualifications, BCITO supports industry in many different ways including providing sponsorships and grants to employers, apprentices and other bodies who are focussed on helping industry to have the best-skilled workers possible.
This year we’re excited to announce that in association with NZIOB, we’ll be sponsoring the NZIOB Young Achievers’ Award.
“We are delighted to be associated with NZIOB and to provide sponsorship for the Young Achiever Award,” says Ruma Karaitiana, Chief Executive, BCITO.
“This is a well-placed alignment for BCITO and a great opportunity for those developing their careers in the industry. As the provider of qualifications in construction supervision and the standard setting body for the New Zealand Diploma in Construction with strands in Construction Management, and Quantity Surveying, and the New Zealand Diploma in Architectural Technology, we look forward to being in partnership with NZIOB.
“Recognising achievement and encouraging up-and-coming industry leaders of the future are two things that BCITO is passionate about. We encourage celebrating success and highlighting the achievements of the people who make our industry great.”
"The 'Young Achiever' category of the annual NZIOB Award's is an award category that the Institute is very proud of,” says Malcolm Fleming, CEO, NZIOB.
"The award category was launched in 2002, with Anthony Leighs the inaugural winner. Since then finalists for the award have been fully representative of the construction industry, with young construction managers, architects, and engineers all being recognised over the years.
“We are delighted that BCITO have partnered with the NZIOB in sponsoring this premium award category, it is difficult to think of an organisation that is a better fit for an award that celebrates the construction industry's young achievers."
The NZIOB BCITO Young Achiever Award is open to young industry professionals, aged 30 years or younger prior to 9 May 2016.
It provides recognition to a young building professional who has demonstrated a commitment to their own education, career development and provides a willingness to give something back to the industry and their community - a future leader in their field of endeavour.
