Taking place today (8th March 2018), International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we spoke to a number of Bill Plant Driving School’s female driving instructors and Head Office employees to get a better understanding of what International Woman’s Day means to them and why they love what they do.
“The greatest satisfaction of being a driving instructor is seeing your pupils successfully pass their driving tests therefore giving them their own personal freedom. Celebrating their achievements is a weekly highlight of mine”.
Amanda, Driving Instructor with Bill Plant Driving School in Oldham
“I love the diversity of teaching individuals how to drive in London. From students to lawyers, teachers to hairdressers, being a driving instructor is a fantastic profession to regularly meet new people and help both change and improve their lives”.
Shabnam, Driving Instructor with Bill Plant Driving School in London
“I’m proud that Bill Plant Driving School support International Woman’s Day and initiatives that drive parity and equality. In a stereotypically male dominated industry, I’m happy to see the increase of female driving instructors within our driving school”.
Ruxandra, Instructor Support at Bill Plant Driving School’s Head Office
As a sign of growth of the representation of future female driving instructors, Bill Plant Driving School has seen a 52% increase in the split of females to males joining their Instructor Academy in the last 12 months. These individuals will be training to become driving instructors across the UK.
Jake Plant, Managing Director at Bill Plant Driving School commented: “We’re a driving school that prioritises diversity and equality, and we’re proud to support International Women’s Day. Gender balance is always firmly on the agenda at Bill Plant Driving School and we continue to work towards greater inclusivity and equal representation”.
Thanks, Bill Plant Driving School
