Girls Can Too is running again for 2023! A program for female high school students to introduce them to non-traditional trades areas.
Girls Can Too! Is a joint venture between Squad, Training Services NSW, Wodonga TAFE and TAFE NSW. That is running again in Wagga Wagga, Griffith and Albury for 2023, throughout Term 2.
Our program is specifically designed to introduce female students to non-traditional trade areas where women represent less than 25% of workers. Our objective is to encourage and support these students to pursue further education and training or to commence a career in a non-traditional trade. Last year we saw 60 girls complete the program with many offered employment at the end of their schooling.
The objective of the program is to encourage and support female students to pursue further education and training or commence a career in a non-traditional trade. This could be though a School Based Apprenticeship, Full time Apprenticeship or Traineeship or through VET Training.
The program includes:
- Industry Tours
- Work Experience
- Supplied PPE
- Job Readiness Workshops
- In Trade Sessions for; Electrical, Construction, Automotive, and Engineering.
Girls Can Too is an excellent opportunity for female high school students to explore their interests and gain valuable experience in non-traditional trades. Follow along with program updates on Squad's social media channels, or contact us to receive a full calendar of events. We encourage the media to support the program and its participants by featuring these workshops and events.
