CIOB aims to put women contruction graduates on top

Women are being pushed to take more prominent roles in construction through a new scheme launched by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
The CIOB wants to see more women managers and is aiming to match female graduates to employers for recruitment as graduate trainees through its 'Female Graduates into Construction' scheme. Women graduates in construction disciplines will be given structured training by CIOB, their employers and partner universities, leading to professional membership of the CIOB. The professional body wants to have 50 women in training by the end of March next year.The Construction Youth Trust, Anglia Ruskin University, University of Central Lancashire, College of Estate Management are supporting the initiative, with funding from the Construction Skills 'Women into Work' project.Graduates will be mentored by their employers and by the three female students who completed the graduate diploma programme in 2007.
