The Victorian Govt is making certain more Victorian gals have the possibility to pursue a significant vocation in automotive, through a new training partnership with Chisholm TAFE and regional business.

Member for Northern Victoria Mark Gepp last week inspired women of all ages throughout Northern Victoria to explore the remarkable chances produced available as a result of the Accelerating Women of all ages into Automotive initiative, which is a gateway to an apprenticeship in the discipline.

“There are so numerous worthwhile occupations out there throughout the automotive marketplace, and we want much more Victorian females to get up the prospect to examine and pursue their enthusiasm,” he stated.

Members undertake a four-week intensive introduction as a result of their nearby TAFE provider, masking the quite a few in-desire jobs that are readily available across Victoria such as technicians, panel beaters, spray painters and a lot more.

They also obtain coaching, operate practical experience, assistance starting up an apprenticeship and ongoing assistance all through.

Accelerating Women into Automotive is shipped by Chisholm TAFE and Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce along with automotive workplaces in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The federal government has invested $618,000 into the program, which is part of the $5 million Women in Trades fund, eradicating boundaries faced by women of all ages wanting to begin a occupation in historically male-dominated trades such as plumbing, electrical and aviation.
