In a nutshell
Research shows that the construction industry has only 10% female with only 2% actually on the tools.
The research also evidences that females who want to join the industry are discouraged by the male to female ratio within the classroom or workshop activities. Therefore we have introduced our first, female only course with a variety of trades.
This course will provide the ideal introduction to the construction industry and could cover essential skills in the following construction trades: bricklaying, carpentry and joinery, plastering, painting and decorating, construction operations, wall and floor tiling, electrical and plumbing.
This is tailored to suit the individuals needs and to build confidence in manual dexterity within the construction sector.
