High School Girls Eyeing Careers in Construction Trades

An interesting post on Smh.com.au recently discussed the phenomenon of high school girls from girls-only schools eyeing careers in construction, but many need to be educated about the options available.

Research has discovered that most females who are offered enrolment in construction degrees have been to all-girls high schools.

While more women are entering the male-dominated construction arena, research found that school girls that think about the construction industry, think of jobs like lollipop traffic controllers and brick layers, even though the industry offers many other options such as engineering, surveying, architecture and design.

The research from the University of Technology (UTS) for the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) revealed that students from both all-girls government and non-government schools were more likely to be offered enrolment in Construction Project Management university degrees.
