This week Tania Bailey got in touch to tell me about her experiences:
My name is Tanya I am 18 years old and I am currently completing my level 2 plastering course. I am the only girl on my course but this did not stop me as I have a real passion for plastering its something I really enjoy doing and I hope to one day be as successful as you and start my own business.
Every Tuesday I complete work experience with a man called Manny who owns the company 'plastering4u' he has taught me so much and he has so much patience a lot of the work we do is repairs and making good which I really enjoy doing.
Next year I hope to do a painting and decorating course so that I can combine the two which will hopefully lead me to even more work in the future.”
It’s great to hear from other girls out there doing this job on a daily basis as there may be women reading this who just need that extra boost to give them the confidence to choose plastering as a career!
