Women in Apprenticeships Victoria Electrical (WAVE)
The Women in Apprenticeships Victoria Electrical (WAVE) Program is an initiative funded by Apprenticeships Victoria, and delivered by The Centre for U.
The program aims to increase the number of women entering the electrical trade and support them as they make the transition from an electrical pre-apprenticeship to employment in the electrical industry.
The project proposes to attract, recruit and retain women in electrical apprenticeship through the following actions:
- Attract 100 women to a Women in Trades, information event.
- Recruit 30 women into well supported pre apprenticeship programs to develop a community of practice to transition to electrical apprenticeships.
- Retain and support 30 women in electrical apprenticeships through the initial 6-10 months of their apprenticeship by matching them with industry mentors and engaging in an innovative “Kommunity of Practice” mentoring application.
