Women In Trades
Ignite your trade career and get the mentoring you need to excel
Taking a different path to what everyone else expects takes courage, drive, skill and determination.
MEGT is proud to introduce the Women in Trades (WIT) program. WIT is a new pathway for women to enter the trade industry in their own way. We are dedicated to increasing opportunities for women wanting to enter a trade, supporting women already in a trade, and encouraging trade businesses to onboard more women to their team.
With a wide range of support from start to finish, we are the experts in all things to do with WIT.
Find your 'village' via our Mentoring support, peer-to-peer social groups, and events run by women, for women.
Here's what our apprentices have to say
MEGT has helped more than 4,000 women start their journey into a trade career, and that’s just the beginning! Apprentices have a huge range of support and a team dedicated to help in all areas of their apprenticeship.

Meet our Mentors
The members of our dedicated Mentoring Team are all trained professionals who are dedicated to helping women in trades from the moment they sign up.
They also specialise in helping navigate the trade industry and give tips about how to deal with any potential pressures and stressors about starting careers in a male-dominated sector.
In other words, they’re here to help from start to finish as you complete your career pathway.
MEGT invites female apprentices, jobseekers, students and employers to talk about all things related to supporting women in trades, and the best ways to get qualified. You also get an opportunity to chat to members of our experienced Mentoring Team, hear from women who are dominating their respective trades, and even get to see live demonstrations of different trades to see exactly what your new career actually looks like!
