We are delighted to work with schools to increase awareness of career opportunities available in sectors where females are typically underrepresented, such as construction, engineering or IT. 

Statistics show that girls typically choose traditionally viewed female career paths such as hairdressing, beauty or childcare. Salaries linked to these professions are generally lower, employment less secure, and progression opportunities limited. This compares unfavourably to traditional male professions such as those in construction or engineering where salaries are higher and there are more opportunities for career progression. 

The #notjustforboys programme, in partnership with schools, can provide: 

  • Taster sessions
  • Awareness events
  • Access to female role models / mentors
  • Work experience / placements
  • Apprenticeships
