Time for more women
22 December 2017
AAT is pushing for the UK government to introduce specific female and disability targets within its existing 3 million apprenticeship target.
This was just one of the many suggestions AAT submitted to the recent All Party Parliamentary Group on Women and Working.
As part of a two-page response AAT said it did not support the idea of legislation to address the way in which women may be treated by the explosion of the ‘gig economy’. AAT said: “Concerns about gender issues in particular sectors of the economy should be addressed with all in mind, not simply by imposing restrictions on those working in the gig economy.”
It also said the government should require schools and colleges to proactively make female students aware of the opportunities in accountancy, finance and STEM.
