Pupils from four schools in East Renfrewshire recently attended an informative workshop hosted by BAM Construction. Held at Barrhead High School, a live construction site, the event was designed to inspire girls to consider construction as a career. Third to fifth year pupils were selected to take part from Williamwood High School, St Ninians, Woodfarm High School and St Luke’s High School.
Led by Assistant Site Manager, Lewis MacMillan, the workshop provided details of the different careers available in construction, an insight into a typical day of a Site Manager and a tour of Barrhead High School which is due to open in the summer.
Lewis MacMillan, BAM Construction said,
“Pupils are always surprised when they hear of all the opportunities available to them within the construction industry and combined with a tour of a live site, it leaves them feeling quite inspired. BAM is very active in trying to address the gender imbalance, along with the skills shortage in general, and these events play a very important educational role”.
