Molly — Level 1 and 2 Plastering

Getting stuck in and being able to fix or improve something is really satisfying and gives you a great sense of pride in your work. 

Molly — Plastering — 

After completing Levels 1 and 2 in Plastering at the College, Molly secured a six-month paid work experience contract as a Tools and Materials Monitor as part of the Government’s Kickstart Scheme.

Now, part-way through the Scheme, Molly hopes to stay on full-time at the College and has her sights set on eventually becoming a construction lecturer. She said: 

As a female student coming into a male-dominated environment was intimidating, but the lecturers at College made me feel welcome and at ease from the minute I walked through the door. It’s a good feeling to know that now I’m in a position to help other female students feel comfortable, the same way that I did.” 

Molly says that construction and engineering has always been an interest of hers. She remembers fixing things from an early age, helping with jobs like reparing cars, rewiring plugs and painting. She explains: 

Practical learning has always suited me best. Getting stuck in and being able to fix or improve something is really satisfying and gives you a great sense of pride in your work. You might not think it but plastering allows you to be quite creative too. Part of what I love is casting and coving and it’s an area I’d like to do more of in the future.” 

Molly hopes to be a role model to other young females. She said:

I think women are often underestimated. We are powerful and capable, and I want to use my role and influence at College to inspire and encourage others.”
