What women said about WOW 2020

"Last week I completed my forklift licence training at Tocal College as part of the Women on Wheels initiative. Doing it alongside other likeminded women made it so fun and supportive and we were very well looked after."

"I had a most enjoyable day today at quad bike training. A lot of thought was put into the planning from the individually packaged lunches to the quality local orange juice."

"Forklift and Tractor with attachments and FEL operations were both easy to understand, and I enjoyed the practical side as well. The teachers were patient and no question is "silly" and they made you comfortable and gave you the confidence to ask a question."
