Applications for the 2024 Women in Construction Technical Development Program are now open

ProQM is proud to be announcing the return of our mentorship program for women in construction, now rebranded as the Women in Construction Technical Development Program.

Aimed at supporting women who are early in their construction careers, this 8-week small-group development program accepts three enthusiastic candidates per intake, working with the trainees to provide them with the technical experience and knowledge in supply chain quality, steel, concrete and coatings, that they need to advance in their careers, and which they are unlikely to be exposed to in their day-to-day roles.

Through practical immersion in our inspection processes via 6 days on site and in the office with the ProQM team, we will engage with the candidates to build their technical knowledge and develop the confidence required to successfully apply these on site. Additionally, we’ll facilitate connections with subject matter experts and suppliers, empowering participants to advance their careers with a strong network.

The 8-week program will consist of 6 allocated contact days, as well as an additional free day that is open to the candidates to use as they require during their time as a trainee.
