Suzanne Butler

Award winner Suzanne plans architecture career

Peak Award-winning teenager Suzanne Butler has bold designs on a future career as an architect, after studying Professional Construction at Derby College.
Eighteen-year-old Suzanne managed to complete both years of Derby College's Professional Construction and the Built Environment Extended Diploma in just 12 months. And in recognition of her achievement she also gained three distinction stars. Suzanne was named Construction Learner of the Year and Learner of the Year at the College's Peak Awards.
The teenager had previously landed an apprenticeship through Derby College with Morrison Design Ltd and had been studying, part-time, for a Construction Diploma. But to ensure she had enough UCAS points to allow her to go to university, she dropped the apprenticeship and switched to the full-time course. Suzanne wrapped up the course in 12 months, while she worked with Morrison Design.
Now Suzanne, an architectural technician trainee, is studying part-time for a BA Honours degree in Architecture at Lincoln University. She said she never expected to land the Peak Awards but was proud of her achievements and her family were delighted.
 

I did Year One and Year Two in the same year and  I enjoyed the course very much. I just got it done.

The college was very good for me it got me into work and put me on the right path for my career, to eventually become an architect.


The lecturers were very helpful. They've come from the industry and they have the practical knowledge to support when the learners need assistance.
