For Parents

The Academy for Enterprising Girls is a FREE, fun online program specifically designed to help prepare your daughter and other girls aged 10 to 18 years for the 21st-century workforce.

This is a robust learning experience that has been co-designed with experts and students to meet the needs of Australian girls and our local industries.

It aims to ensure young women are equipped for jobs of the future, in non-traditional growth industries such as technology and engineering, where there are increasing opportunities but unfortunately where women are greatly under-represented.
