OWD Funded Training Programs

Women in Skilled Trades and Information Technology Training

The Women in Skilled Trades and Information Technology Training program provides training for women in communities where skilled trades and IT workers are needed. It offers gender sensitive in-class and on-the-job training to women with low incomes who are unemployed or underemployed and helps them prepare for jobs. Training can take up to one year to complete.

The Skilled Trades stream offers pre-apprenticeship training in class for specific trades. It includes employability and workplace preparation to help women prepare for a predominately male work environment as well as to make them aware of employer expectations. Following graduation, women are qualified to enter a variety of highly skilled and high-demand skilled trade jobs and apprenticeships.

The Information Technology Training stream enables women to secure employment, further training and certification in the IT sector, or to enter an IT apprenticeship program. As a result of this initiative, women are better prepared for higher paying employment in the information technology sector, and employers are able to choose from more skilled candidates.

Funding is provided for local training programs at various locations.
