Learning a trade isn’t just for boys!

Published 4 March 2019

A job in the trades at WDH can lead to a bright future and a successful career, whichever route you take.

Our trade apprenticeships provide on the job experience whilst you qualify in your chosen trade and anyone can study towards an apprenticeship, as long as you don’t already have a degree in that area.

We have a number of girls in construction and we’d love to have more.

Stacey Simmons said: “I chose to apply for an apprenticeship in construction because I loved getting hands on and solving problems. Working in construction helped me to build my confidence and leadership skills to a whole new level.

Being a girl working in construction is challenging but very rewarding. The opportunities are endless and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It is the best thing I have done to date.”
