Plugging the skills gap: women are the answer says Meg

Wednesday, June 21, 2006

Women MPs, including the Minister for Women and Equality Meg Munn, rolled up their sleeves recently to learn basic plumbing in order to highlight the advantages of a career in manual trades for women. 

 

The event run by Women and Manual Trades and sponsored by the JIVE project gave MPs the top five plumbing tips along with a practical session on pipe work, including bending and joints.

 

Meg said;

 

“Women and Manual Trades champions women working in the construction industry. Women are an untapped resource perfectly able to fill shortages in the construction trades - we need more women to meet this demand.”

 

The event was hosted by Claire Curtis-Thomas MP, the first woman professional engineer to be elected to parliament, and the Chair of the All Party Group on Construction Skills and Training.
