Construction sessions on offer for women across the region

Women who are interested in working in construction are invited to attend a series of free information sessions taking place in Dudley borough next month.

Dudley Council’s adult learning service is working with the national organisation Women into Construction to run the workshops, which are designed to help women who want to work in the construction industry.

Sessions will run at Castle and Priory Neighbourhood Learning Centre from 10 to 11am and Dudley Wood Neighbourhood Learning Centre at 1 to 3pm on May 24 and Brierley Hill Neighbourhood Learning Centre from 10 to 11am on 25 May.

Women attending can gain help with developing CV and interview skills, free construction related training with a view to gaining a CSCS card, access to industry based work placements and support with finding paid employment with reputable employers.

Alan Lunt, strategic director for place, said:

“Dudley Council is committed to playing its role in creating a more equal workforce that is not predetermined by gender.

“We are really excited about hosting these sessions from Women into Construction, which actively supports women who want to work in the industry and I am confident that there will be a big take up with our residents.”

Dudley Council’s adult learning service currently provides a range of courses including English and maths with almost 5,000 people in total enrolled.
