Subsidised management courses offered to women in construction

Everywoman, a provider of resources and services for women in business, has announced a range of subsidised training programmes for women in the construction industry.

Management qualification NVQ levels 3,4 and 5 are offered starting at a subsidised price of £585 (normally £2700). Everywoman's Leadership Development Programme is now £500 (normally £1450)

The following courses are offered by everywoman due to the organisation successfully winning a contract from Construction Skills and the Learning and Skills Council "Train to Gain" initiative.

"With key skills in areas of work traditionally dominated by men, such as construction, engineering and transportation at a huge shortage, and major infrastructure projects, like the East London Line, Thames Gateway and the 2012 Games just 5 years away, there has never been such an economic imperative for London to attract and retain the best talent," said Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, who supports the scheme.

"We want all companies we work with to demonstrate that women are being developed and trained at all levels, helping them to get into sustainable and engaging work and that they are taking steps to open up the field at management and senior levels.

"The pilot project being run by Everywoman Ltd to provide women in construction engineering and transport with much needed skills development, particularly in the area of management, will greatly assist companies in this area," he said.
