Since 2011, the Transport Union's Occupational and Occupational Safety and Health Committee has interviewed all the country's transport colleges - about search print, competent teachers and distribution between girls and boys.
Now their survey shows that the Wall School has the highest proportion of girls who go in the transport direction. The school is also the only line in Blekinge that offers the program.
- I didn't know, but it's fun! It has been noticed that there are some girls here, says transport student Isabelle Tesch."Funny that we can take over"
She is entering her second year and chose the transport field to work with gravel cars in the future. She is thrilled but also explains that it is tough to be a girl in the industry.
- I have already received comments on the internship. I should not say that it is just to take, but you have to put the comments a little aside, says Isabelle Tesch.
- They are shocked when they see a girl come in as an intern. But it's fun that we get to take over and take over. I can feel a little triggered by that, says transport student Emilia Jönsson, who is in the same class.Good labor market
The practical programs at the upper secondary level have sometimes been difficult to attract students according to the Transport union. But now you can see that more and more people are discovering the benefits of an education that gives a driver's license and jobs with good conditions.
Today, more than 80 percent of the transport students take their bachelor's degree, something that only the students in the Natural Science Program strike.
- I chose the education a little because it goes in the family, but it is clear that it is motivating with all the jobs that exist after graduation, says Emilia Jönsson.
