How to become a tradeswoman

Newcrest Women in Mining Central West Forum

If you’re considering becoming a tradeswoman then a practical nature combined with common sense, determination and persistence will stand you in good stead. It’s currently not easy to gain an apprenticeship as a woman in non-traditional trades such as the building, construction and manufacturing trades. But it can be done and you may need to be prepared to keep trying.

Apprenticeships are the traditional way to enter the trades and the experience of a good apprenticeship gives you experience and skills which are ultimately suited to that trade. The combination of training on the job and at college is hard to beat. The men and women who are suited to the trades are very practical people who enjoy doing things with their hands, don’t want to be in an office and enjoy the challenge of transferring their skills from one situation to another.
