“We know the next six months are going to be difficult, and what we’ve done today is announce that through TAFE there are 21 free courses you can do from home, to upgrade your skills or to acquire new skills.
“This is good news, it means people can start preparing for when these difficult times are over, and through TAFE NSW if you pop onto their website you can actually acquire how you can do one of these courses from home.
“And you can get qualified over a short period of time, rather than just if you haven’t got a job or you’re not working from home its an opportunity for you to upgrade your skills, acquire new skills so that you can enter or re-enter the workforce when you finish this difficult time,” the Premier said.
Some of the free courses include administration skills, digital impact, health and medical knowledge, leadership and business skills.
