A Bradford College student who underwent a “radical” career transformation has won an award at a regional adult learners ceremony.

Seraj Miah, 34, decided to pursue his dream of becoming a Civil Engineer, leaving his full-time job to enrol at Bradford College, all while juggling a hectic family life and two part time jobs. He won a Learning for Work Individual Regional Award in the Yorkshire & the Humber.

He completed his HNC in Civil Engineering in July 2013. He will shortly begin a degree at Leeds Metropolitan University, supported by his employer J.N Bentley.
