Women & Work: Sectors Pathways Initiative

Raising Skills and Unlocking Potential

Women in Construction Action Workshops


A greatly subsidised series of women in construction workshops for ALL
women who want to advance their careers in the construction industry.

The funding is heavily subsidised by the Women & Work: sector Pathways
Initiative. Therefore, each workshop worth £450 per person will only cost the
employer or individual £30 per person.

While nearly two million people in the UK work in the construction industry,
less than 200,000 - or around 10% - are women working in the industry.

The Women & Work: Sectors Pathways Initiative, aims to raise recruitment
levels in sectors where women are under represented, increase earning
potential and aid career progression. The initiative is in response to
recommendations by the Women & Work Commission’s report ‘Shaping a
Fairer Future’ and received government funding, matched by employer
contributions.
The development programme is aimed at all women wishing to develop a career in construction. The approach is
informal and highly participative with active discussion, exchange of ideas exercises and group work. Attendees
receive a huge discount and are priced at only £30 per workshop. Alternatively, women can register for V.I.P.
Membership for £100 only and receive access to an incredible 5 workshops over the registered 12 month period.

We also operate a ‘buddy scheme’, whereby paid attendees can be accompanied by a colleague for free. We only
stipulate that these ‘buddies’ are new and have not attended a Women in Construction workshop before. We can
also arrange an in-house training session if there are sufficient number of new women who have not attended a
Women in Construction workshop before.

For all other events, if a delegate registers and fails to attend without giving 48 hours notice, a nominal charge of
£50 will be allocated without exception. For V.I.P. members, the penalty will be losing 1 out of the 5 available
workshops. This is due to costs incurred for that place at each event.
