Women Trading Up Mentoring and Career Guidance Services

Are you ready to pursue a non-traditional trade?

There’s no better time to start an apprenticeship or traineeship, especially as a female, than now!

Why now? Well, because all of those historical roadblocks to certain trades, such as stereotypes, pay inequality and lack of female role models have now become a thing of the past.

Plus, knowing that diversity and productivity is essential for a thriving economy, the Australian Government has set aside $38.6 million over the next 4 years to invest in initiatives to support females wanting to enter a non-traditional trade.

And to top it all off, Women Trading Up (a part of Apprenticeship Support Australia) is here to help you make it happen, with our free mentoring and career guidance services.

Why wait? Register with us today.

Here at Women Trading Up, we can help:

  • Find your dream apprenticeship or traineeship
  • Give you guidance and the resources you need to obtain the Government incentives you are eligible for, and most importantly:
  • Provide you with ongoing support and mentoring so you can carve out your successful trade career

So get ready to feel welcomed, empowered and valued in this rapidly growing movement.
