The Duke of Gloucester's Young Achievers Scheme


The Duke of Gloucester's Young Achievers Scheme is an opportunity for exceptional young professionals in the construction industry to be commended and celebrated for their achievements. The scheme is also intended to promote the construction industry to young people of all social backgrounds and, as a result, increase the number and diversity of entrants into the sector.

The next Duke of Gloucester Young Achievers Awards are due to be held in Spring 2018, with nominations and entries opening in Autumn 2017 – more details and dates to be announced soon! Sign up for our newsletter to make sure you don’t miss out on any news relating to the Awards.


The finalists will be invited to have an informal meeting with the panel of judges in London, or by conference call. The judges look for young people who have not only achieved excellence in their careers so far, but who have had to overcome barriers and challenges to get to where they are.  They also look for those who actively promote careers in construction and the built environment to young people in their communities.

The winners will receive cash prizes and a unique development opportunity through the Trust with a one year mentoring programme to enable them to make an even greater impact in the years to come.

The Awards are open for anyone under the age of 30 working in the construction industry, from across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

There are 5 Award categories are:

  • Construction Delivery
  • Design, Planning and Architecture 
  • Engineering
  • Project Management
  • Surveying

For more information on the awards please contact Lucy Bond at or call 07958 755921.
