Empowering Career Options

Empowering Women – A new pre-apprenticeship program has been established to support women affected by domestic violence into steady employment.

The Empowering Career Options SA project – delivered by MEGT Australia in partnership with TAFE SA – will offer 30 participants on a vocational education and training (VET) pathway towards achieving a Certificate III in Business Administration.

The Minister for Innovation and Skills David Pisoni said the State Government is proud to invest more than $100,000 into this project under the Skilling South Australia initiative, which has been adapted for South Australia from a successful interstate pilot.

“We know that financial strain can be a barrier for women considering leaving dangerous domestic situations,” Minister Pisoni said.

“The project aims to help women overcome this challenge and take a positive step towards financial independence.

“Over 14 weeks, participants learn fundamental workplace skills and begin accredited study towards a Certificate III in Business Administration.

“Without incurring any out-of-pocket training costs, they gain vital work experience and can transition into paid traineeships on completion of the project.

“In addition to formal training, participants will have access to experienced domestic violence health professionals as they’re supported into sustainable employment with local businesses.”

MEGT will partner with domestic violence support organisations to reach women who have experienced domestic violence and are ready to participate in the workforce.

CEO Bridie Gildea said it can be a challenge for survivors of domestic violence to find work or change jobs quickly after separating from a violent partner.

“Training and employment can change lives, especially in difficult circumstances like these,” Ms Gildea said.

“MEGT is committed to giving all Australians equal access to employment opportunities.

“Providing these people with an opportunity to enter or re-enter the workforce helps rebuild confidence, and gives employers access to job-ready applicants.”
