Giving girls skills fit for the future of work

Mother and Daughter working on robotics
Dear 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.

Each of the 10 e-learning modules have videos, real-life examples of successful businesses, easy-to-follow tasks and links for further learning. The topics are outlined further down this page.

Girls will learn how to think like an entrepreneur, how to come up with an idea and test its viability, and what they need to do to turn that idea into reality.

Even if your daughter doesn’t end up as an entrepreneur, the skills she learns will help her to think creatively about her future career direction.

This program tackles the practical elements of the future of work – if you’ve ever asked yourself “what do politicians, media or business mean when they talk about the future of work?”, the AEG provides access to practical subjects that build skillsets, mindsets and toolsets (like design thinking) for workplaces in the modern economy.

Speak to your child and enrol them now. Also sign-up to our Newsletter so you are kept up to date with what is happening at the Academy and what additional opportunities it can offer girls and young women of Australia.

Program Safety

Please note, we have safeguards and policies in place to help protect girls participating in Academy, both online and at our face to face workshops.

Look at our ‘Working with Children’ page to see more details about our organisational culture and Code of Conduct, our Child Safety Policy and our complaint form for reporting any concerns.

Please be assured that we will be providing an open, welcoming and safe environment for all those participating in our program.

We thank you for showing an interest in, and hopefully encouraging your girls to participate in the Academy for Enterprising Girls.
