Women in Trades


More and more females are choosing the trade professions in non-traditional roles with career choices in construction, plumbing, carpentry, automotive, electro-technology trades and more.

BUSY At Work is your Australian Apprenticeship Support Network Provider. Having played a key role in Australian Apprenticeships since 1998, BUSY is a strong advocate for apprenticeships and women in trade.

Apprenticeships combine time at work with on the job training and school. It’s where you’re employed in a traditional paid working arrangement with an employer but you’re also paid to learn with the protection of a formal agreement.

Australian Apprenticeships are available to anyone of working age, regardless of their level of education, and can be completed full-time, part-time, or while still at school. You can be a student a school-leaver, a person re-entering the workforce or an adult worker wishing to change careers. Download the brochure here
