College highlights International Woman’s Day with online event today

Leeds College of Building is joining others globally in supporting the International Women’s Day campaign ‘Choose To Challenge.’
Female apprentices at Leeds College of Building have grown from 33 in 2014 to 190 by 2020, a 475% increase over 6 years.

The College will be hosting a free virtual open event, designed for any women who would like to know more about a career in the construction industry (8 March, 5-7pm). Videos by staff and students will showcase being a female in the construction industry.

Nikki Davison, Degree Apprenticeship Development Curriculum Manager and Quantity Surveyor, said:”The construction industry is constantly developing, with continual reviews of legislation, innovative technology, and ground-breaking construction methods. All of this makes it a very exciting industry to work in.

“I started my career as a trainee Quantity Surveyor some 20 years ago. Today, thankfully, women are not only accepted, but we are encouraged in the industry. This is evident in the quantity and experiences of female students at the College who display a passion for construction, be that in a trade like painting or joinery, or in a role like engineering, surveying, or architecture.”
