Jobs For Young Women

Young women are missing out at every stage of apprenticeships, including being underrepresented, achieving poorer outcomes and being paid less, according to a report from charity organisation the Young Women’s Trust.

The Young Womens’s Trust found that the number of female engineering apprentices has actually gone down from 5% in 2002-03 to 4% now, so they are launching an employer pledge encouraging businesses to introduce measures which make apprenticeships work better for young women, with Barclays the first employer to sign it.

In sectors such as engineering, the report finds that women make up a lower proportion of apprentices than a decade ago. However, although young women are struggling to breakthrough into male dominated sectors, young men have begun to make inroads into historically female dominated sectors, notably Childcare and Health and Social Care.

“Many women don’t apply for the top schemes when they should,” said AGR chief executive Stephen Isherwood.

“Graduate employers want to hire women, there are lots of opportunities out there and these candidates are more likely to succeed, so we need to address why they’re not applying. Industry-wide collaboration to tackle student perceptions will be a key step forward.”
