Introducing the Wyndham Building Futures: Pathways to Trades program

Building Futures: Pathways to Trades is a free program launching in Wyndham. The program is designed to support women who’ve experienced challenges in life: the program helps women into valuable well-paid careers in the trades industry.

Through a series of four workshops and a year-long mentoring and support program, you will learn about opportunities in trades, be connected to a group of 60 women, meet with a well-connected and experienced long-term mentor, learn new career-ready skills, and be connected to trades employers.  You will feel great about a secure, happy future with new friends, new finances, and a new you.

Is Building Futures: Pathways to Trades in Wyndham for you?

  • Are you a woman seeking financial security?
  • Do you live in or near Wyndham?
  • Have you experienced challenging circumstances in life?

We welcome women of all backgrounds, and have a particular focus on supporting Indigenous women, women of refugee or asylum-seeking and CALD backgrounds, women with disabilities, and women with experience challenging family situations.

The course is completely free. In addition, if you experience a barrier to accessing the course such reimbursing the cost of transport or requiring childcare, we may be able to help support you. 

As a participant, you will join a local group of women receiving training, peer support, mentoring, and employment connections to help you achieve financial security in a trades career. We can’t wait to meet you!

The Building Futures: Pathways to Trades  Program starts soon, and places are limited.
