SpeakUP BuildUP

The SpeakUP BuildUP campaign by the VRQA is aimed at protecting the rights of women and non-binary apprentices in building and construction. Through this campaign, the VRQA are working to ensure that all women and non-binary apprentices are treated with respect and receive the quality training that all apprentices should receive.

As an apprentice, your employers need to provide:

  • a safe workplace
  • appropriate supervision
  • access to the tools and equipment they need to learn the skills for the qualification being studied.

If this is not happening the VRQA can help.

To get help:

The hotline is open 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday to Friday.

Callers can leave a message at any time and can remain anonymous.
