Effective Practices for Nontraditional Students

National Resource Center for Energy Workforce Development, A Toolkit for Recruiting and Retaining Women in Nontraditional Positions

This valuable resource focuses on recruitment and retention of women in nontraditional trades. It draws upon the results of a survey conducted by the California Apprenticeship Council. The toolkit includes information on how to provide accurate information to women about nontraditional careers, support them as they enter and move up in their careers and how to help them continue to grow in their jobs and careers by developing their leadership skills. By employing the toolkit strategies, you can give women in nontraditional occupations the tools they need to overcome some of the most common obstacles to women’s success in the trades.”
