Event Encourages Students To Consider Careers In Manufacturing And Engineering

Lisa Gray of Gev Wind Power with Tollbar Academy students (l-r) Layla Waterfall and Simphiwe Ncube at the WiME Event held at Grimsby Town Hall.

Tollbar Academy girls wishing to explore career opportunities in Manufacturing and Engineering had the chance to find out more at an event held at Grimsby Town Hall.

The Women into Manufacturing and Engineering (WiME) initiative, supported by the Regional Growth Fund, aims to encourage women and girls to choose a career in these industries.

The students met females already working in Manufacturing and Engineering, found out about current vacancies, discovered what training and qualifications are needed, and learnt about apprenticeship opportunities.

Year 11 student Grace Hamilton said: "It was a really interesting day and gave us lots to think about. It was great meeting women who are already working in these industries."
