Harriet Pritchard, is a young female apprentice plumber. Having continued into A-levels after her GCSE’s, Hattie was never really sure where she could go next. She was inspired by adverts seeking out trades people to join foreign aid efforts.
“I thought of plumbing as a useful trade to learn which could take you anywhere in the world, even to owning your own business,” says Hattie, “To me this scheme is the best way to learn a trade.”
Harriet is quickly acquiring the skills, knowledge and experience that will ensure she becomes a fully qualified plumber.
An inspiration to women everywhere, Harriet is the only woman enrolled in the programme. “There is no reason why women can’t do plumbing. It seems intimidating, but once you’ve built up confidence and a bit of physical strength that is required, it’s a great career option!”
