CIOB promotes construction to women at Welsh college

Pupils get to grips with hammers and drills at Coleg Cambria

More than 120 young women attended an event designed to attract females into construction and engineering in March.

Coleg Cambria’s Bersham Road site in Wrexham invited all secondary schools in north-east Wales to join a day of workshops, seminars and activities ahead of International Women’s Day.

Leading names from both sectors attended, including CIOB and CITB.

Pupils enjoyed a tour of facilities and talks from some of the region’s top women in industry.

Gemma Booth MCIOB, who recently moved from construction to education with Cambria, said the event showcased what the college and the organisations have to offer.
