Try a Trade 2021 – Expressions Of Interest
Richmond Valley Council is offering local women the opportunity join its Try a Trade program in 2021, which gives work experience and a certification to regional women with aptitude for trades but who may not have the knowledge or confidence to start a career.
The initiative is funded by the NSW Government’s Investing in Women Funding Program, from which Council was successful in applying for a $50,000 grant.
Council is running three ‘Try a Trade’ programs in February and March 2021 including Skillset training with White Card and safety equipment for groups of ten participants. Participants choose from tradtionally male-dominated areas to work in including civil engineering, mechanics, road crews, surveying, asset management and maintenance, environment and related roles.
For this year’s intake, Council is seeking women 25 years of age and over, as well as those aged 17-25. The program includes nine days of certified TAFE training plus two weeks’ work experience.
