Anguilla: Women in construction
The Department of Youth and Culture of Anguilla launched a public sensitisation campaign on the ‘Women in Construction Apprenticeship Programme”.
The programme is funded through OCTA Innovation pilot projects and intends to establish an apprenticeship system for women ages 16 and over, which will facilitate the involvment of women in the construction industry. It will cater to women who wish to pursue a career in the construction industry, to have further opportunity for employment during Anguilla’s slow season, or simply to empower themselves in an area which involves unique or unconventional skill sets for the majority of women.
It will include a component of structured training and theory in addition to the pratical hands-on training.
