CLEANERS at Huddersfield University have swept up awards.
More than 30 members of the university's cleaning team have completed their NVQ Level 1 in the maintenance of building interiors.
To achieve the award, they had to show competence in using correct health, safety and security procedures and the ability to clean and maintain various locations on campus to an appropriate standard.
Cleaning services manager Courtney McAuley said: "Quite a few of the cleaning staff were a bit worried about undertaking the programme. But they have all stuck to it and it has been a real success for them.
"We have another 25 who will start the programme after Christmas."
Those who successfully completed the programme included:
Sheila Jordan, Savan Sivaraj, Iona Williams, Keith Robertson, Joanne Irving, Joan Green, Leslie Smith, Margaret Crank, Susan Hirst, Beverly Derrick, Margaret Matthewman, Joan O'Connor, Lorna Smith, Maureen Tiplady, Joan Eastlake, Eve Wilson, Catherine Barclay, Sandra Richards, Christine Hewitt, Margaret James, Janette Mitchell, Marilyn Owen, Marie Baxter, Wendy McCafferty, Sharon Beck, Susan Buckley, Bernard Dowling, Errol Simpson, Shirley Joseph, Bridie Folan, Christine Dowling, Stewart Howarth, Alan Poppleton, Karren Scadden and Paulette Rowe.
