Temporary Works forum
The Temporary Works forum (TWf) is an organisation which works with companies within the temporary works industry - vital parts of a construction project which enables the permanent structure to be built - to encourage open discussion in the sector. The subscription-based forum seeks to promote best practices to improve the safety standards whilst also addressing any fundamental issues within the sector, providing professional guidance and leadership when necessary.
TWf is an incredible organisation, and the University of Salford is extremely grateful to be a recipient of their generosity.
The TWf Scholarship launched during the 2020/21 academic year to provide three undergraduate students completing an engineering degree at Salford with a life-changing award. The Scholarship will not only support the scholars whilst they undertake a research project but encourage them to foster an interest in 'temporary works' as they develop industry links and gain access to brilliant employment opportunities.
"I was delighted when I got the email about being awarded the TWf scholarship, and immediately overwhelmed with gratitude and pride that my achievements and passion had been recognised .... It has been a huge boost to my confidence and motivation, and I am even more driven to acheive the best that I possibly can to make you proud."
BEng (Hons) Civil & Architectural Engineering
"The scholarship has motivated me to continue progressing with my studies, and I am grateful for this opportunity and I will not waste it. It will allow me to reduce the hours I work slightly which means I can allocate more time to my studies. The support from yourselves has given me a better chance of succeeding in my course, thank you."
BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering
"Being awarded the scholarship has made this year a lot easier in terms of being able to take a step back from my part-time job and focusing more on my studies .... All in all, I just want to say a massive thank you to TWf and the donors for making this scholarship possible, I wouldn’t have got through this year of university without it."
