What’s It All About?

Remade for Trades is a flexible short course designed to support women into trades careers. We engage with groups of women at a local level to provide support, connectedness and a transition to potential trades employment and financial security.

Women who are or have experienced hardship and are now seeking financial security and an enjoyable, active career should attend a Remade for Trades Workshop. 

Women of all backgrounds are welcome including:

  • Indigenous, refugee, asylum-seeking and/or CALD backgrounds.
  • Women who are differently abled.
  • Women experiencing challenging family and financial situations.


Women who need assistance in getting to the course or finding childcare should talk to Tradeswomen Australia about how we can help. 

The program can be tailored to the requirements of the audience and area of need but it is typically delivered within four workshops that involve:

Workshop 1 (part 1)Get ready to learn more about trade opportunities and placements, networking within the industry as well as empowerment tools.
Workshop 1 (part 2)Learn more about apprenticeships and traineeships, trade pathway guidance as well as the application process.
Workshop 2 Meet tradeswomen from different sectors and ask questions to understand pathways into different trades.
Workshop 3Receive hands on experiences in a range of trade activities, gain confidence in using power tools, and learn more about which trades you engage with.
Post-WorkshopsContinue on your trades exploration pathway through support systems, such as joining an online peer support network, and receiving free mentoring. If you’re ready, our recruitment team will support you in reaching out to culturally inclusive employers to find you the right career opportunity.

Upon completion, attendees will have:

  • Built awareness around the variety of roles that exist within the trades industry, and pathways into trades.

  • Taken steps to pursue a trade career, further training within trades or non-trade career path.
