Our program changes lives

We are Tradeswomen Australia Community Foundation (TWACF) and we support women of all life experiences into long-term financial security through careers in trades.

Watch our SBS World News feature to learn how we’re changing the narrative and changing women’s lives!

We are supporting 60 women in Wyndham (and nearby) to secure a rewarding career in trades through the Building Futures: Pathways to Trades program. 

Are you interested in a career in the trade industry? By joining the program, you can look forward to links to a great network, willing employers, a great job and lifelong financial security.

Building Futures: Pathways to Trades is free and open to women of all ages and abilities. Childcare and other support is available to help you access the course – tell us how we can help in the registration form.

The next program dates will be confirmed soon. Download more information here!

What we stand for

Why we help

Women represent 2% of the trades workforce.

Australia is entering a lengthy process of economic recovery. As a result, Government and private sector investment in construction and infrastructure will be central to the recovery process.

But the construction and infrastructure workforce is currently 98% male which means that some of Australia’s most recession-impacted women and families will miss out on the recovery, plus employers will miss out on a valuable pool of excellent, dedicated talent.
