Accelerating Women into Automotive

VACC is happy to announce the release of a new program - Accelerating Women into Automotive. This program is designed to increase the number of Women commencing apprenticeships in the automotive industry.

This is an exciting initiative for women who are wondering if automotive is the industry for them, and for businesses who are looking for new apprentices.

The program will offer a four week, intensive and engaging introduction to the automotive industry, providing heaps of experience in a variety of roles.

Participants will receive training at a Registered Training Provider, assistance in getting work placement in an appropriate workplace and help to enter into an apprenticeship.

Automotive businesses who provide work placement to participants will receive free diversity training for their employees and, at the end of the work placement, businesses can offer an apprenticeship to their participant. The program facilitators are there to provide support throughout the program and will continue to do so as participants transition into their apprenticeship.

At the end of the program participants will:

  • Have undertaken TAFE training, including industry placement
  • Gained valuable skills in maintaining their vehicle
  • Have made new friends and increased their employability skills
  • Be able to make an informed decision about starting an automotive career.
