Interactive workshops for girls, parents and teachers
Attendees have an opportunity to find out about the wealth of exciting opportunities open to young people to work in engineering and construction and the different qualifications available.
Participants also get to meet prospective employers and young women who have chosen careers in these sectors, to find out what they actually do and why they love their jobs.
The events are targeted at girls aged 15-22 who have or are likely to achieve at least 5 GCSEs at Grade A*-C including English, Maths and at least one science subject. Girls who like finding out how things work, solving problems, are creative, great communicators and team players would do well in engineering and the built environment. An aptitude for Maths (ideally Grade B or above) and science obviously helps.
