About Us

Who We Are

We are the largest provider of training for women in non-traditional skills in Northern Ireland. Based in North Belfast, we enable women to return to employment in non-traditional sectors.

Operating for over 20 years, we have been supporting women to break the barriers into non-traditional employment and training by creating a safe and welcoming environment in which to explore new opportunities and learn new skills. Some of the skills you can learn at WOMEN’STEC are: 

  • joinery
  • furniture making
  • plumbing
  • painting
  • wallpapering
  • electrics
  • gardening
  • tiling

What We Do

We offer a range of programmes and courses aimed at women and youth including our #NotJustForBoys programme. This innovative new scheme encourages young girls aged 16-24 to explore careers in non-traditional sectors and provides links to industry through work experience placements and internships.

As well as skills training, we also offer a range of support services including CV writing, preparing for interviews, personal development and building community relations.

We work with our partners Wee Chicks C.I.C. to provide free on-site childcare to all students who use our services meaning that accessing childcare doesn’t become a barrier to engagement.
