QUESTION: Good morning, Maria do Rosario, thank you very much for agreeing to participate in this interview.
ANSWER: What course are you attending?
QUESTION: I am attending the technical course and construction conductor
QUESTION: Yes, daytime.
ANSWER: Why did you choose this Construction Technician course?
QUESTION: I chose the site technician course because at the time my goal was to take the measurement and budget course, however I realized that this course is more complete than also taking a bit of budget measurements which is my fundamental objective and I will have more bases to be able to understand what a work is like. As it is also a dual certification course, it is also an asset for me. That is, stay with the secondary level
ANSWER: You also intends to complete secondary education?
QUESTION: Yes, because more and more it is not just for the experience and knowledge area but also for the training area that we are admitted in certain areas or not.
ANSWER: And somehow do you consider that you will have difficulty when you enter the job market?
QUESTION: No. Honestly, I don’t think so, because that’s how I think the civil construction area is an area that has evolved at all levels. Any other because I believe that in this environment they are not capable of accepting women, but for technical services or other areas, women are well accepted.
ANSWER: In your case, you don’t think you’ll have any problems?
QUESTION: No, I won’t have any problems.
ANSWER:Anyway, you already answered a little how the construction sector feels, more in the context of the integration of women in the sector and you already answered that the evolution is already?
QUESTION:Yes, in terms of labour and heavy materials, men will probably prefer more men, but in other technical areas of construction such as, for example, the area of safety, whether in the area of work management or in another area, I think that women are increasingly accepted and versatile in that sense. Not so much in terms of strength but intelligence.
ANSWER: Ah well! With regard to the evolution of new techniques, new construction procedures, do you consider that Portugal is at the same level as other European countries?
QUESTION: Yes, I think we are following developments even at the level of construction technicians, construction processes, we are always evolving in this area. That’s also why I applied for this course. It’s not exactly a watertight course in which we learn and go to the job market and that’s it! Here we are in constant evolution in this sense.
ANSWER: In the end, is it easy to use? You already have job offers?
QUESTION: Yes, I already have a reason for coming to take this course.
ANSWER:Thank you very much for your participation.
