Girls Allowed - is a career in construction for you?

Calling all girls aged 16-23! How does this sound… a fun morning learning new skills, gaining experience and finding out all about a fantastic career option for you?

This half term, ACE Training are offering you the amazing opportunity to have a go at bricklaying and carpentry at their next Girls Allowed female only taster day. Their regular students are on holiday, so you’ll have the place to yourselves to have some fun, have a go and find out if a career in construction could be for you.

The Girls Allowed morning will take place on Wednesday 26th October from 9:30am – 1pm at the ACE Training Centre in Kidlington.

You’ll get the chance to take part in site visits, talk to industry role models and hear what it’s really like to be a female in construction. Find out all about the different career choices that construction training could open up for you.

Do something different this summer holidays… you might find the perfect career for you! Contact Lyndsey Fitzpatrick on 01865 370040 or lyndsey@acetraining.co.uk to find out more and book your place.

About Girls Allowed...

Girls Allowed is an exciting new project to encourage females aged 16-23 to consider construction trade training. At the moment, less than 2% of Construction Apprentices are female, which is largely due to long-standing preconceptions and misconceptions about the industry and culture in respect of women. 

ACE Training’s Girls Allowed project sets out to challenge and change that!
