In March (pre-lockdown), 20 partners associated with the construction industry collaborated to produce an event for 70 young women from all Stirling secondary schools, hosted at Bannockburn High School. The event was planned to coincide with International Women’s Day and Scottish Apprenticeship week and raised awareness of the opportunities and career pathways, including apprenticeships, that exist within the industry. This event provided a inspiring female-centric and encouraging environment in which to explore some of the practical skills required by the sector.
We are delighted to present this short film of the event which succeeds in giving a flavour of the excitement and inspiring activities the pupils of Stirling were involved in. The first of its kind, this event received very positive feedback from all participants and facilitators. An evaluation on the impact of the event produced by DYW Forth Valley is available to view here and Stirling City Heritage Trust's Event report can be found here.
