Currently On: Workshop Series
Through a series of 4 workshops and a year-long mentoring and support program, our group of women from the Wyndham area are learning about opportunities in trades, connecting to a peer group of women, meeting with well-connected and experienced long-term mentors, learning new career-ready skills, and connecting directly with trades employers.
Workshop 2: Get access to trades businesses, trying tools and working in small groups to solve industry-specific problems.
NEXT UP: VIRTUAL EVENT
The next event in our Building Futures: Pathways to Trades Program is on Tuesday 22 June from 5:30-7 p.m. and places are limited.
In this free virtual session, we’ll talk about overcoming the anxieties of entering a trades workplace with a panel of women currently working in trades. We’ll learn about their experience, advice they have, and talk about how we’re breaking down barriers for women considering a course or career in trades.
- 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 of challenging family and financial situations.
Our program is completely free. In addition, if you experience a barrier to accessing the course such as reimbursing the cost of transport or requiring childcare, we may be able to help support you.
