Women in education and training for the Scottish wood chain

  The paper introduces a new project at Napier University in Edinburgh into the issues surrounding entry, progression and retention of female students for courses relating to the growing, processing and utilisation of timber for use in the built environment. Major issues surrounding the recruitment
and retention of women in employment and education in the Scottish forest and timber industries are highlighted. The paper concludes by outlining some recommendations on how best to proactively tackle gender segregation in careers choice initiatives and course promotion to maximise the pool of potential future students.
