CHOICE Training which is based in Dagenham has recently announced its support of the research-led campaign to ‘Get Girls Plumbing’. The training college is offering four lucky ladies the chance to pursue a career in plumbing.

Female plumbers-to-be simply need to write 100 words outlining why they would like to win a free place on the course. The four candidates will then be selected by a judging panel made up from the college board of directors, the winners will be announced in time to start at the beginning of next term.
