A London South Bank University (LSBU) student, Josie Cheeseman, won Apprentice of the Year at the annual CIBSE 2021 awards event.

Josie Cheeseman won the national award for her work for WSP UK as an Apprentice Building Services Design Engineer apprentice. Jodie Cheeseman began her apprenticeship in 2019, after completing her A Levels, and is starting her third year at London South Bank University. She is currently working within the mechanical team.

CIBSE (the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) provides professionals in the construction, engineering and sustainability industries. LSBU students also won awards at last year’s CIBSE’s 2020 awards event.

Professor George Ofori, Dean of School of The Built Environment and Architecture said, “We couldn’t be prouder of Josie Cheeseman for her success at the national CIBSE Apprentice of the Year awards. To beat off fierce competition from highly talented engineers across the country for this national award shows the talent, hard work and dedication that Jodie has shown in her work as a student apprentice.

“This award success demonstrates LSBU’s commitment to give every student the chance to learn new skills through work placements and apprenticeships. Employability is central to our work to give LSBU students the skills they need to find work and build successful careers.”
