Women In Construction Day
On Friday 1st July Cyfle’s Charlotte Griffiths attended ‘Women in Construction Day’ run by CITB.
The event was held at the CWIC centre in Swansea where over 60 year 8 & 9 female students from 3 different schools in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot Region and over 10 local Construction Companies attended.
As well as listening to inspiring female speakers explain about their own journey into the Construction Industry, the students also got the opportunity to participate and enjoy the many activities.
The activities available were the Transport Simulator Kit, Straw Construction Kit, Paint Spraying Simulator, Virtual Drone Training and the Tetrahedron. Our Feedback from the CITB Team suggests that the event was an overall success with some really positive feedback from the school teachers, careers advisors and the pupils themselves. My understanding that some pupils fed back that they are now considering a career in construction and others changing their GCSE options as result of today – that is some impact!!!
