CIOB launches ‘Female Graduates into Construction' project

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has launched 'Female Graduates into Construction' supported by funding from the ConstructionSkills 'Women into Work' project.

The aim of the project is to promote the role of female managers in construction, match graduates to employers for recruitment as graduate trainees and provide structured training in partnership with employers and partner universities; leading to professional membership with the CIOB and sustainable professional employment.

The project, launched in conjunction with the Construction Youth Trust, Anglia Ruskin University , the University of Central Lancashire and the College of Estate Management , is aiming to support 50 female graduates by March 31, 2008.

Chris Hughes, chair of the CIOB's graduate diploma programme management committee, said: "Breaking down the barriers for women with the potential for successful careers in construction must be a high priority for the industry in the 21st century. This project will make a significant contribution to that ambition."

The training will be conducted through the employers' own training schemes and through the CIOB's Graduate Diploma Programme for non-cognate graduates or other appropriate training leading to Chartered membership of the CIOB.

In the case of the non-cognate entrants, training will be undertaken over a period of three years on either a week-release or distance learning basis.
