Berneslai Homes recently held a well-attended ‘Girl Power’ event to encourage females to apply for trade apprenticeships in gas plumbing, electrical, joinery and plastering.
There were stalls for each of the trades, giving attendees the chance to find out more about what was on offer.
More and Better Jobs Task Force and Barnsley College were also there to offer advice.
There will be a follow-up event at the Berneslai Construction depot in Carlton on 1 June, when there will be a presentation about Berneslai Homes and the construction work involved; a tour of the depot, and an opportunity to speak with female operatives and register on line for the apprentice vacancies.
