Go Train on track to improve job opportunities for Solihull women

Solihull Editorial 10th May, 2021   0

AN organisation backed by the European Social Fund (ESF) aims to identify women in Birmingham and Solihull who need support by providing free basic English, maths and digital skills training.

Women Know How, together with local provider Go Train, also aims to help women realise a better pay potential too with new skills under their belt.

In Solihull there are more than 3,000 unemployed women and even more in Birmingham – some 13,000.

Mitch Bhamra, head of contract mobilisation, implementation and delivery of Go Train’s Women Know How said: “If you are passionate about making a positive change in your life, why don’t you make your way to one of your local community venues and speak to our team.

“We want the women of Birmingham and Solihull to know there is no limit to what they can do or achieve and there is guided assistance available right now.”

Women currently represent just 11 per cent of the construction workforce, just nine per cent are qualified security officers and only two per cent are plumbers, Go Train’s mission is to work with local employers to positively boost these statistics.

Currently links are being made with employers such as Watchward Security, Engie Construction, Balfour Beatty and Birmingham Airport who are looking to recruit.
