Aim and Objectives
TradeUP Australia is a volunteer based association working with industry and community support to encourage women to see a skilled trade as a viable career option.

We aim:

  • To actively support and market trades to women.
  • To elevate the status of apprenticeships in the community.
  • To allow industry access to an untapped, under-utilised workforce.
  • To encourage women to become practically and financially independent.

By creating and working through these four initiatives;

  • Empower – Presenting hand & power tool workshops for women from all backgrounds to gain confidence through practical and building skills.
  • Inspire – Direct approach through fun speaking engagements and presentations by successful and passionate female tradespeople.
  • Inform – Access to general information and resources about working in a trade.
  • Mentor – We connect women, apprentices and female tradesmen through our volunteer program, meet-up events and online forums.
