Women Onsite

Since the 1980's women have represented just 2% of the Australian trade workforce. This statistic needs to change.

If you’re a woman or non-binary apprentice or trainee or looking to get into an apprenticeship, there is help available.

Women Onsite is a program that’s aim is to support Victorian women toward apprenticeships and traineeships in traditionally male dominated industries. The program takes an evidence- based approach and works in consultation with trades people, employers, academics, and government.

Participants of the program can join as a prospective apprentice or trainee or as an employer keen to recruit women apprentices or trainees. Find out more about the program or apply here.

BuildUp is a hotline service that aims to protect the rights of women doing apprenticeships in the building and construction industry.  Women in these industries can call the BuildUp hotline between 9am-6pm if they have any questions or concerns in their workplace. You can also send an email to [email protected]. The BuildUp initiative is running for 2 months - concluding at the end of October 2023.
