The FEMCON – Females in Construction Project recently met online for the transnational partner meeting. FEMCON’s mission is to create innovative vocational education and training tools to help women working in or considering a career in the construction industry advance to visible roles within the industry. The project’s goal is to make the industry more appealing to women, resulting in a greater number of women choosing the sector, creating conditions for positive change, and improving the industry’s gender outlook and quality of life in the male-dominated sector.
Over the course of this two-day meeting, the team covered the progress of the project so far and focused their key result areas. They made significant progress on PR1 – the inclusive reach and teach toolkit, which is almost ready for publiction. They also worked on PR2 – Femcon Curriculum – a collection of Open Education Resources to equip vocational educational trainers to provide specialist learning content to women working or interested in a career in the construction to help career progression & development of females in this industry.
