Scholarships Expanding Career Options for Women

The State Government is encouraging women to take up training in a non-traditional industry where women make up less than 25 per cent of the total workforce. 
Up to 400 scholarships over four years will be available for both institutional and employment based training:
a)    institutional training - $3000 will be available for women planning to undertake a publicly funded institutional training course in an approved qualification; or
b)    employment based training - $1000 will be available for women planning to do an approved apprenticeship or traineeship; and their employers will receive a $2000 incentive payment.
These scholarships can be used to help with costs associated with undertaking training, including student fees, learning resources, mentoring, coaching, tools, equipment, accommodation, transport and childcare fees.
