Women In Trade \
With the demand from industry for workers and the need to reduce the stigma and stereotypes on women in non-traditional trades, Highlands LLEN have designed the Women in Trade and Try a Trade programs to promote the opportunities for women and men alike into the trades profession. This program in collaboration with Platinum Institute Australia and Women’s Health Grampians predominantly focuses on getting on the tools for a career in construction. Students experience a day in the life of a construction tradie by building their own mini house at school, including 4 walls, floor and roof. Schools are encouraged to paint the final product on completion with the offer of a painting workshop.
Project Ready \
Project Ready is a hands-on work readiness and personal development program created by the Central Ranges LLEN (www.projectready.vic.edu.au). Incorporating VET Certificate II in Active Volunteering, Project Ready is effective in re-engaging students in their education and helping them get ready for their future worlds of work.
Students participating in Project Ready undertake a community project, design thinking theory, teamwork, career planning, communication and diversity training, workplace health and safety, work placement, industry engagement activities, field trips, enterprise & entrepreneurial skills, wellbeing development and personal effectiveness.
