Expanding career options for women' scholarship program
These Scholarships are available to help women gain employment or broaden their career options in a wide variety of industry areas and trades where they make up less than 25 per cent of the total workforce.
For the first time, students completing Year 12 in 2016 are also encouraged to apply, giving them the opportunity to make a start on their career as soon as they complete high school.
Up to 400 scholarships - over four years - to the value of
$3,000 each will be available to women who undertake training at Certificate II
level or above in eligible qualifications.
Eligible women undertaking apprenticeships or traineeships will receive $1,000, with $2,000 provided as an incentive for employers and to help with training costs.
Scholarships can be used towards a range of associated costs, such as student fees, learning resources, mentoring, coaching, accommodation, transport and childcare fees.
The scholarship program is supported by the Construction Training Fund.
Applications for the 2017 round close on October 31, 2016.
