TG Lynes launches Plumbing HERoes campaign

To celebrate International Women’s Day (8th March 2024) and to shine a light on the lack of females in plumbingsupplies partner TG Lynes is offering a woman the chance to win a place on a fully-accredited training course. 

The winner of the Plumbing HERoes campaign will also bag a haul of tools to set them on their way to a successful career in the trade. 

TG Lynes, based in Enfield, has teamed up with training provider Choice Training to offer the winner a place on its City & Guilds NVQ Level 2 Domestic Plumbing & Heating course, worth more than £3,000. 

The company says that the training will be delivered flexibly both online and in-person at Choice Training’s base in Dagenham. 

Andrew Ingram, Managing Director at TG Lynes, said: “We are thrilled to announce our exciting Plumbing HERoes campaign to set one woman on the road to success in the plumbing industry. It’s incredible to think that the industry is so heavily dominated by males with, at last count, just 2.4% of roles being filled by women. I am sure there are many women who would thrive in the role and we look forward to finding a suitable candidate to kick start their journey by completing their Level 2 qualification. The winner will also benefit from a haul of tools to set them on their way.” 

Anyone interested in winning the prize can find out more here. Candidates should explain in no more than 200 words what they have been doing up to this point and why they want to enter the plumbing trade.  Any woman over the age 16 can enter. A team of judges will select a winner whose passion and determination catches the eye. 

Andrew said: “We’ll be looking for a woman that shows a hunger to start their plumbing journey. We are really looking forward to working our way through the entries.” 

The course includes health and safety, plumbing processes, cold water systems, hot water systems, radiators and more. 

Choice Training offers a range of different courses and qualifications. Robert Tye, Director at Choice Training, said: “We’re delighted to partner with TG Lynes on this campaign.  Here at Choice Training, we place an importance on supporting women in achieving a successful career in the construction industry – and we look forward to welcoming the competition winner on board.”
