Polly Britten believes all young people (particularly women and minority groups) should have equal opportunity to pursue a career in non traditional trades, through encouragement and guidance, therefore making informed decisions on their future's.
Polly has designed comprehensive hands-on learning, cultural and sports programs internationally and locally for young people. Polly's passion lies with the empowering of young women and minority groups through the “NextGen Tradies - Try a Trade” program, which reduces the barriers for women to realise their career potential and the support available through Mentors for anyone looking at a career in non-traditional trades. The success with Polly's programs, currently only running in the Ballarat region, has 15% of participants re-considering their career paths at school or starting an apprenticeship post-school in a skilled trade career.
Polly is a certified Partnership Broker and has a diploma in Event Management, with 6 years working in the field of Education.
