Women in Trades – Wellington
20 September, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Registrations are now open for our “Getting Women into Trades” events in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. Proudly supported by the Ministry of Education, this popular free event promotes a career in the trades and potential training pathways to women. In the past there have been hands-on “Give it a Go” activities to try all sorts of trades related activities from driving an excavator to putting up a scaffold, assembling a toilet or winching a vehicle.
Exhibitors from trades training, industry and employers will be on hand during the activities to discuss the ins and outs of different trades and their training and career pathways with the attendees.
The activities are followed by food, a keynote address and a panel discussion featuring speakers at various stages of their trades journey.
We would appreciate if you could forward this email to the young women in your classes who may be interested in attending and putting up copies of the flyer (attached). We welcome teachers and parents to attend along with students.
There was a record turnout in the past and spaces are limited so please encourage your students to sign up quickly to avoid disappointment.
