HOUSING bosses have picked up an award for a training project they've set up in London's East End to recruit more youngsters into the building industry.

The award was presented for promoting workforce development, skills and training at a new construction training centre set up in Armagh Road in Bow.

It was given to Old Ford Housing Association in the London Constructing awards for 'leadership and people development' for the centre which offers vocational training to school kids leading to jobs in the building trade later.

The centre works with construction companies in East London offering courses to adults and 15 pupils from four schools, Ian Mikardo, Bishops Challoner, Morpeth and Bethnal Green Technology College.

The housing body now goes forward to a national final in November at Lords.
