Fill the gap

Creating opportunities for women to succeed in trades


About Fill the Gap

Despite increasing career opportunities for women, their participation in male-dominated trades has remained persistently low for decades, representing a missed opportunity for women to secure skilled and sustainable employment. SSI’s Fill the Gap helps build female participants’ confidence, skills and support networks in trades where women are under-represented, and where skills gaps exist.

Funded by the Training Services NSW, SSI delivers the Fill the Gap program in the epicentre of infrastructure growth in south and southwestern Sydney. Providing tailored support for those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, we help connect participants with the training and opportunities required to enter and thrive in male-dominated trade industries.
