Apprenticeships Matter for Women is dedicated to promoting a better understanding of opportunities for women in trades.
We recognise that women are significantly underrepresented in trades and face many barriers when considering undertaking an apprenticeship or traineeship. Some of these barriers include gender bias, limited education and pathways related to trades, and limited formalised support structure.
With so many opportunities available in a variety of industries, we hope to increase the number of women commencing an apprenticeship, particularly those in non-traditional roles.
We will do this by:
- Providing employers with access to female jobseekers not normally considered for traditional trades;
- Providing Career Practitioners with a broader scope of knowledge around opportunities; and
- Providing a dedicated approach to the recruitment of female apprentices into trades via Apprenticeships Matter Recruitment.
We want all women to be able to consider and be considered for all traditional trade apprenticeships. Help us achieve this vision and get involved today, by filling out the below form.
