Connexis was involved in the Women in Trades Research Consortium in partnership with other ITOs.
This was 3 years of research, with the findings released in 2019. The project aimed to support getting more females into trades across industries that are traditionally male-dominated.
The research formalised understanding of barriers for females from both a trainees’ perspective and employers. Personas were also developed to highlight what traits make for successful women in trades.
The reports and findings can be found here.
