On Thursday 6th July the Aldridge KSD Construction Academy received the ‘Academy Partnership Award’ at the Education Business Awards.
The Aldridge KSD Construction Academy, a specialist course at Brighton Aldridge Community Academy, is a unique collaboration between education and industry that provides a technical training centre for post-16 students pursuing careers in construction. The Academy is delivered in partnership with a national construction company, which sponsored the capital build and design costs and has committed to taking all graduates on as apprentices for the next 2/3 years. The curriculum aims to meet the skills gap across the city.

In 2016 the academy won the same award for its Brighton Digital Media Academy partnerships.
