George Brown College - Women Transitioning to Trades and Employment Program

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Funded by the Province of Ontario, George Brown Collegeā€™s Women Transitioning to Trades & Employment (WTTE) is an innovative, integrated and supportive Trades and Career Preparation programĀ for women and trans/gender-non-binary/2-Spirit people who are:

  • Looking for stable employment
  • Interested in trades and construction related fields
  • Able to commit to a full-time training/education program

We know that although the trades offer well-paying jobs and flexible employment opportunities, women and trans/gender non-binary/2 Spirit people are still highly absent from this sector. Together with the strong support of our community and industry partners, this program is designed to increase the number of people from under-represented groups entering and being successful in the trades.

Through its very focused and supported delivery model, WTTE will prepare our participants who are living on low incomes for success in post-secondary and apprenticeship training programs in many sectors.
