The Final In-person meeting of the Females in Construction (FEMCON) project

The FEMCON (Females in Construction) Project Transnational Partner Meeting took place in Madrid recently. This was a bitter sweet meeting, as it was the last in-person meeting for this project. 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 team discussed the progress of the project so far, and pilot testing of the project’s resources:

FEMCON CURRICULUM – a collection of Open Education Resources to equip VET 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.

The FEMCON WOMEN IN CONSTRUCTION GOOD PRACTICE SHOWCASE aims to inspire women interested in construction and those already working in the industry, as well as construction companies and VET, to strive for more visible roles and more favourable positions.

FEMCON INTERACTIVE LEARNING DIGITAL PLATFORM will facilitate collaboration, promote peer-to-peer learning, and encourage cross-project idea fertilisation.

The team hope that all the resources will be online by the end of May. We’ll be sharing the progress on the social media channels to keep you updated, for now we invite you to visit the website:
