Here come the girls!

06 October 2014

The number of women studying male-dominated vocational subjects is rising.

This year our first female Electrical Installation apprentice, Samantha Fulford, and first adult female Electrical Installation student, Ami Lee Cowee, have qualified.

Three more female apprentices finish next year. We hope more women take these courses in the future.

Why Electrical Installation?  Sam explained: “I wanted a hands-on course with lots of practical learning.  I definitely made the right decision!”

Ami qualified in record time and has also been working on the new college building.  Ami said: “I have really enjoyed seeing it emerge from the mud!  I have been involved on site and we're nearly finished.”

Allen Cook, Section Head for Electrical Installation, said: “We've never had fully qualified women here. Samantha and Ami should be proud of their achievements. With another three apprentices studying, we've more female students than ever. I hope it continues.”
