Free TAFE courses to up-skill people through the coronavirus crisis

People in New South Wales will soon be able to access free TAFE courses, to keep them occupied during the coronavirus crisis.

21 courses will be made available for free, so that people can take the lock down time to learn and new trade or up skill before returning to the workforce.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says it’s a terrific opportunity, and that the government is working on the recovery.

“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.
