Have a Go – Women in Construction
On Thursday 1st November 2018, after the success of the previous two, NWCH Contractors are coming together to put on their third ‘Have a Go’ event. This time, we are hoping to inspire the next generation of women into the construction industry whether that be in construction management or a trade.
The event will take place at The Armitage Sports Centre – University of Manchester, and there will be two sessions throughout the day.
Session 1: 9.30am – 12.00pm
Session 2: 12.30pm- 3:00 pm.
The sessions will be broken down into two parts. Part 1 will be a Guess the role quiz; 8 ladies in the room, all with professional construction careers. The students will have to guess their job role within 5 minutes. This will help the students learn about professional roles in the industry and open their eyes to construction careers that are not just bricks and mortar.
Part 2 will take place in the sports hall where there will be ‘Have a Go’ stands. These will include BIM, VR, decorating, paint a stone, selfie dress up, engineering, electrical and other STEM activities.
The event is aimed at year 8 and 9 students or anyone still choosing a career path.
