Partnership formed to help women pursue a career in construction27 January 2023
We have teamed up with property service provider Breyer Group and economic and social research agency Quantum Vantage to help women in London, especially A2Dominion customers, who are thinking of pursuing a career in construction.
The Visionary You programme (worth £1,995 per person) is fully-funded for eligible participants and will teach transferable skills in leadership, project management and environmental sustainability
The Visionary You programme helps women get into construction
In the UK, just under 87% of women working in construction hold office positions, and only around 2.5% of tradespeople are women, according to research by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). Women also only make up around 14% of staff executives and 7% of line executive positions.
The next Visionary You programme starts on Monday 13 February and new programmes start every two weeks.
What will you get from the programme?The programme covers a mixture of Practical Workshops and 1-2-1 Coaching and a Level 4 Project Management Unit.
Visionary You offers:
- 6 half day online workshops
- Online Learning Modules

- Are not currently working or earning below the current minimum living wage (£11.95 per hour)
Dele Ryder, Partnership and Fundraising Manager at A2Dominion, said: “Women are typically underrepresented in construction, and we want to help change that. We are pleased to partner with the Breyer Group and Quantum Vantage to give our customers this unique opportunity to explore a career path they may not have thought about before.”
