Girls in Years 9 and 10 from local high schools in the Hastings and Macleay Valley have the opportunity to participate in a trades awareness day to be held at the Kempsey Campus of TAFE NSW on Monday 18
March 2019 between 9:30 and 2.30pm.
Students will participate in hands-on activities related to the construction, horticultural, engineering and automotive industries. Local female ‘tradies’, trade business owners and apprentices will be attending to tell the girls about how and why they chose a trade for a career.
Also attending the event will be Supporting and Linking Tradeswomen (SALT), a non-profit incorporated organisation, who provide a support network for tradeswomen, apprentices and women who wish to enter the trades.
Interested girls can talk to the Careers Adviser at school or call Toni-lee Collier on 0427 771 448 for more information.
