Hello, I am writing to you today re a new resource for women which was developed by Fiona Shewring- our 2007 Trades and Skills teacher of the year- Painting and Decorating.
The title of the book: Supporting Women in a non-traditional trades. We have turned this book into an Ezine- electronic magazine to make it accessible for all.
Fiona tells the stories of 16 different women- she explores their job choices from painter decorator to carpenter to electrician to boiler maker and most importantly explore the myths surrounding women working in these areas.
Here is the link:
This is a fantastic resource and one which deserves to be read, I’m sure that you will find it a great resource.
Thank you for your time, Gemma (on YouthGAS e-list)
