Derby Academy celebrate ‘Women in the Workplace’ in style

On Wednesday 4th February, our Derby Academy invited Apprentices, members of staff and employers to an exclusive event to help inspire and encourage young women to ‘buck the trend’ and start an Apprenticeship within the technology and finance sectors.

Many young females are reluctant to start an Apprenticeship as they perceive this route into employment as being extremely male orientated. We are glad to learn that this mind-set is changing more and more every day and members of the 3aaa team spoke about this subject passionately to young females who were watching on.

The afternoon consisted of all of the guests enjoying a nice lunch whilst networking and discussing their experiences so far before listening to a variety of different speakers.

Amongst the speakers were 3aaa Co-Director Di McEvoy-Robinson, Regional Manager (Midlands) Dena Wyatt and IT Trainer Rebecca Perkins who all shared their views on strong and inspirational women within the workplace and spoke about their past experiences.

Di McEvoy-Robinson said “The aim of today is to encourage more young females into Professional Services Apprenticeships including IT, Finance and Digital Marketing. More and more females are now getting professional jobs and starting professional careers in what were once male dominated industries”.

Dena Wyatt added to this “We are dedicated to increasing the number of strong minded females within the sectors in which we work. I encourage everyone here to recommend this route into employment to all of your friends as we look for more and more females to take advantage of the life changing opportunities that we offer”.

The event received excellent feedback from the young people and Employers alike and offered some extra inspiration to the young females in attendance.

You’ll now find a 3aaa Academy in Bedford, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Croydon, Derby, Guildford, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Maidstone, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Northampton, Norwich, Nottingham, Oxford, Peterborough, Reading, Sheffield, Southampton, Tamworth, Warwick, Watford and Worcester.
